So Powell's done what there's been rumor of for months, and come out supporting Obama.
While I don't think it's "just because he's black", I do believe that it indicates that Powell's not showing the best judgement.
I hereby retract any and all indicators of support for Powell in my previous posts or comments (both personally and in the blogosphere), and am strongly considering retracting my opinion of him as "a good man".
REMARKABLY ill-advised, General. I'm glad you didn't this lack of judgement when I served under you. Sir.
