minnesota_chris The smartest guy in the Bush Administration, and I sleep well at night knowing he's disagreeing with pretty much all of those knotheads over how the war should go.

Didn't run for president because his wife didn't want a dead hero for a husband.

And he decided not to be president in order to make his wife happy. He's completely awesome.

think ah, yes, but is he the evil admin's "house nigger"? condi too? 031227

birdmad Condi was always part of the Team...after all she had been a high-ranking board Member of one majpr oil company or other (though I believe it was Exxon)

Powell disappointed me, though, but not being african-american i'll pass on tagging Mr. Powell with that particular name

"sell-out" is one that i think works best, personally...especially considering that he broke ranks with the people he served with in the first Gulf War - the other generals from Central Command - who all Knew better (which means he knew better too)

again, though, It is my understanding that Condi Rice has been in with the imperial clique from the very beginning

What Powell said "Special Report With Brit Hume"
Aug. 4, 2004

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,128073,00.html

HUME: The slogan of the Democratic ticket this year is "Stronger at Home, Respected in the World." As someone who is heavily responsible for whatever respect we may have in the world, what is your response to that?

POWELL: Why should I respond to a political statement?

HUME: Well, let me put it this way...

POWELL: We are respected. I've just come from being out in the world. I was in Poland, where I was privileged to speak with 10,000 Poles on the 60th anniversary of the Warsaw uprising. They invited the American secretary of state to be there. We received -- Poland is in the coalition in Iraq.
