Powell may make people who already like Obama happy. I don't know what he really does for independents. After Iraq I've tuned the man out. I don't think endorsements add up as much as people think. But Colin Powell is a black liberal Republican. The perception is already out there that black people are voting for him because he's black. This seems like more of a big deal for the media and the campaigns. Translating into votes, we'll see.
UGH!!! This perception disrespects Colin Powell and all other black people who have weighed all factors when deciding on thier candidate of choice!

I NEVER hear any black people railing "insert white important figure" is only endorsing "insert white candidate" because he's white. Never.enters. their.mind.

Get this and listen well - black people are just as capable of making decisions that have nothing to do with race. Really, we do.
Thank you.

Okay there really is no reason to be condescending. At no point did I ever say black people were voting for him just because he's black. I just said that this is the perception out there. Like many things in life how we are perceived is extremely important whether anyone likes it or not. And that effects how people interpret the endorsement. Can you name any candidate getting 95% of a demographic?

At this point, the McCain camp continuing it's ridiculous rantings might actually be helping Obama. The more they continue the hate campaign, the less the talk about the real issues, and the more the American people dismiss them as whackjob Rovians and tune them out.
I don't necessarily think they'll dismiss them as Rovian whackjobs. Last time I checked Rove was pretty darn effective.

No. Rove-politics worked great in 2000 and 2004. Americans are wise to it now, and they are mightily turned off to the Rovian hate politics and voter-fraud-shenanigans.

Article.


Nobody ever heard of Minnesota Democrat challenger Elwyn Tinklenberg (no, I didn't make that name up...best name I've heard in years), but he now has $750M in campaign donations that he didn't have before that McCarthy-ist Michele Bachmann opened her hate-spewing-mouth on Friday, AND Elwyn will probably beat the pants off her, in a solidly Republican area where he wouldn't have had a shot in hell. People hate McCarthyism. Hate it.

So, keep it up Rovians. You're only helping Obama. The more hate you spew, the higher Obama goes in the polls.

Um, blacks have overwhelmingly voted for the Democratic party. Until this year, the candidate has always been white. Barack is the Democratic candidate this year and he happens to be bi-racial. I'm sorry - Your statement makes no sense.

Not being rude here, just correcting the typo. It's $750K. He wishes it were $750M!

He's up to $810K from out of state donors, and another $1M from the Democrats.

Oooo....sorry for the typo. $750K.

Just heard on Keith Olbermann that the Michele Bachmann character has a history of trying to ban the Disney cartoon movie Aladin, from a public school because she was afraid it would promote witchcraft. Sounds like yet another right-wing nut-job. McCain really oughtta vet his surrogates a wee bit better.

She absolutely is. Unfortunately, we can't really blame McCain for her. She is pushing her own agenda, and is up front and center, whether the Republicans want her there or not. She got press when she first came to Washington for latching on to Bush and not letting him go until he gave her a kiss.

Oh, Bachmann is a TOTAL nut-job. I'm from Minnesota and can't believe she was ever elected. Can't wait for her to be voted out!

I honestly never thought Bush had that many admirers! Was this as late as 2007? Wow...
