Colin Powell Endorses Barack Obama, Admits He Was "Getting Lonely"

After Colin Powell endorsed Sen. Barack Obama on Meet the Press, he spoke at a conference at the Convention Center in Denver:
Powell said several times both in his interview with Tom Brokaw on "Meet the Press" and at the Denver conference that either candidate would make a solid president. He told Brokaw that he did not plan to campaign for Obama.

And in Denver, he quipped that the real reason he mentioned his vote at all was because he's "getting lonely."

"One day, everybody wants you on their television show. . . . One day, every president, every prime minister, every king is begging you to come visit them," Powell said. "One day, you're secretary of state of the United States of America, and then the next day, you ain't."
Even said in jest (and his later clarification doesn't seem to help him out any), this is hardly a good reason to vote for a Presidential candidate--to garner more national attention.

Powell endorses McCain? Zzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Powell endorses Obama? International, fawning MSM coverage for the entire weekend.

Hmmm, maybe this blog should endorse Obama . . .
