Regarding General Colin Powell's devastatingly effective endorsement of Obama, one might ask, to what extent is the power and passion of the general's public statement related to regret at being used by Bush and sacrificing his integrity at the United Nations in February of 2003?
In 2003 Powell testified at the U.N. as the character witness for George Bush's War-Based-on-Lies. In 2008 Powell appeared on "Meet The Press" and lacerated McCain like a skilled courtroom lawyer.
Obama was launched as an anti-war candidate, whereas McCain has championed the invasion of Iraq.
Is it possible that General Powell's conscience is haunted by the thought of several hundred thousand murdered Iraqis?

All of ATD is deeply moving to me and Drew's words are, well, I don't have the words to describe what they mean to me and so many more. We are so fortunate to have him!!"
