Colin Powell Endorses Obama (Video)

This morning on Meet The Press, retired General and former Secretary of State Colin Powell endorsed Senator Obama for President.
"But I strongly believe that at this point in American history we need a president...... who will not just continue basically the policies we have been following in the recent years.

"I have said to Mr McCain that I admire all he has done. I have some concerns about the direction the party has taken in recent years. It has moved more to the right than I would like to see it."

"In the case of Mr McCain I found that he was a little unsure as to how to deal with the economic problems that we are having. Almost every day there was a different approach to the problem, and that concerned me."

"I was also concerned at the selection of Governor Palin. I don't believe she is ready to be president of the United States. And so that raised in my mind some question as to the judgment that Senator McCain made."( quotes via AFP)
