Sha-ZAM! That's about all I could think this morning listening to Republican Colin Powell endorse Obama for Prez.
Powell's little 7-minute spiel on Meet the Press highlighted everything from McCain's poor judgment as evidenced by his choice of the unqualified Palin as VP, to his clear unsurety about the economic crisis, to the potential for two more conservative Supreme Court justices, to American anti-Muslim fearmongering.
But ultimately, Powell seems most taken with Obama's "transformational figure" and "depth of intellectual curiosity," and he's willing to stand behind that. Love, love, love it. Watch the vid.
