Politics: it's not a game, exactly. But there are rules, and when you break them you are running….Politically Foul!

Colin Powell: retired 4-star General, Secretary of State, suggested Presidential Candidate and....future pop star? Appearing on CBS This Morning with Gayle King, the former Cabinet Secretary used a commercial break to drop his rendition of Carly Rae Jepsen's hit "Call Me Maybe." Powell even went so far as to break out some signature dance moves showing that while the Retired General may have given up the march, he will never lose his need to boogie.

Speaking of kicking it old school, Ragin' Cajun James Carville had some advice for President Obama this week warning that when the White House talks, "people take that as a signal that [the Obama administration] thinks things are fine." Hold on…flashback to 1994 when then-aide David Axelrod had this advice for President Clinton: "When you stand up and claim great progress, you are only alienating this frustrated middle class." If only he had a Mr. Fusion and a way to reach 88 MPH, he could fire up a DeLorean and we might not be in this mess!

Powell’s duty IMHO was to run for president against Clinton. (The “Black Eisenhower”). He didn’t, so we got Bill and Hillary instead.

Then, he later decided (too late) to endorse Obama. Had he really felt sincere about Obama, he should have endorsed him early; or else not endorsed him at all.

Anyway, he’s toast now as far as influence goes.

He was the first black man to be seriously considered for President; and he could have won.

Duty called, and IMHO he didn’t answer.

I happened to see a clip of Powell doing that (singing, badly) yesterday. It was pathetic. That was a true Epic Fail.

Colin Powell let an innocent man accused of a non-crime, be eviscerated convicted in the news swing and said nothing of the real facts nor the name of the man who did the leaking...Richard Armitage. Both Gen. Powell and Armitage should have to answer for their crime...they never will be and President Bush lost some real credibility for his in-action. Powell gave up his "Duty, Honor, Country" when he played that game and his credibility.
