Colin Powell endorses Obama

Powell cites McCain's inability to provide clear answers on the economy, his campaign campaign tactics, and the Palin nomination.   He said that Obama displays an intellectual curiousity and vigor, and brings the kind of approach we need.

"Because of his ability to inspire, because of the inclusive nature of his campaign, because he is reaching out all across America, because of who he is and his rhetorical abilties... as well as his substance...he has met the standard... he is a transformational figure... and for that reason I'll be voting for Senator Barack Obama."
