Well, he hasn’t but there is strong speculation that Colin Powell is all set to endorse Barack Obama in a TV interview. This would be great boost for Obama and it would re-affirm that Obama is ready to be Commander In Chief.
General Colin Powell, the former Secretary of State, is preparing for a live TV interview tomorrow amid intense speculation that he is ready to endorse Barack Obamaâ€™s campaign.
Aides from John McCainâ€™s camp are bracing themselves for another damaging blow, with one being quoted yesterday as suggesting that such an announcement from General Powell would be â€œpersonally embarrassingâ€ for the Republican nominee â€“ with whom the General has been friends for 25 years â€“ and would â€œcreate momentum against usâ€.
Although its nice to have more people endorse Obama, I would have to analyse this more by reading some blogs to see what kind of a boost it would give to Obama. Lately, Obama is getting endorsed by a lot of institutions like LA Times, Esquire etc.
