Yay for Colin Powell!

From his reasons for endorsing Barack Obama for President:

"...Well, the correct answer is, he is not a Muslim, he's a Christian. He's always been a Christian. But the really right answer is, what if he is? Is there something wrong with being a Muslim in this country? The answer's no, that's not America. Is there something wrong with some seven-year-old Muslim-American kid believing that he or she could be president? Yet, I have heard senior members of my own party drop the suggestion, 'He's a Muslim and he might be associated terrorists.' This is not the way we should be doing it in America."

Well said, sir. Well said!

I've always liked Powell. If he had been the Republican nominee for President in 2000, I would have voted for him.
