Former Secretary of State Colin Powell has announced he intends to support Dick Cheney for President.
WASHINGTON (AP) - Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama has sought out former Secretary of State Colin Powell for advice on foreign policy matters.
While Powell served in the administrations of two Republican presidents, he said Sunday it was too early in the 2008 race to say whether he would back the GOP nominee.
"I'm going to support the best person that I can find who will lead this country for the eight years beginning in January of 2009," Powell said.
Eight years as VP, four as secretary of defense, 10 years in Congress, service to four presidents: the best person that Powell could possibly find is Dick Cheney. I'd say a Powell endorsement is a pretty significant acheivement for the nascent Cheney campaign.
