I was excited at the thought of Colin running under the Republican ticket. However he let me down hard with his endorsment of Obama. I would place him ahead of the pack(for my vote) if he would run, under any ticket.
I agree with the first two sentences.
Not the last one.
He's too wishy-washy and his (former) sense of patriotism plus his integrity jumped out the window when he lied about his voting intentions during the Campaign.
He used the term "Historical". I can't argue with that. The election of a non white as President was indeed historical. So the fact that he supported the candidacy of Obama doesn't bother me. What I find more important is his silence since the election.
I want this one.

The Obama administration released a strategy Tuesday to end homelessness by expanding programs to secure housing for veterans and families with young children and by building on efforts to help chronically homeless people."
This is the pres I want. Why don't we give him a chance before you pick his succesor?
Romney could be the most qualified candidate but some people judge him exclusively by his religion. Which many people do not understand and assume he is a polygamist.
Powell is being quite cagey. Keeping it close to the vest.
I read somewhere recently that General Petraeus may be a GOP candidate. I wonder if Powell would endorse him?
You're probably right.
Even if Petraeus has had his eye on the POTUS position for years (no indication of this), I don't think now is a time in American history when we would choose a military leader as POTUS.
Unless the situation does a 180, the top quality Americans will be looking for in 2012 is ability to lead the country FINANCIALLY, not militarily....
I really think Gov. Bobby Jindal would make a great POTUS. He is smart, has executive experience and just seems like a decent enough guy. However, I don't think he will get that nomination.
OH YEA, lets bring on the exorcist. Yea Baby.

Anyone who is an exorcist gets and A++++ in my book as Presidential Material. I'm bringing my Ouija board.
Today's poll numbers favor Romney
Mitt Romney slightly ahead of potential 2012 GOP presidential candidates: Poll
Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney is slightly ahead of his potential Republican 2012 presidential contenders, according to a new poll.
Politico quoted the Rasmussen survey as saying that Romney enjoys 24 percent support of American voters closely followed by former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin with 19 percent, and former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee with 17 percent support.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich trails the front-runners with 11 percent of likely Republican voters backing him, the poll said.
Former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty has managed to earn 6 percent support, while Texas Representative Ron Paul got 4 percent.
Earlier, Romney was also placed first in a straw poll of New Hampshire Republican Party officials. He had won with 35 percent of the total vote, beating second-place finisher Ron Paul, R-Texas, by 24 points. (ANI)
I live in MA so Romney isn't that bad. Despite being Republican he was pretty balanced.
I also like Huckabee for the most part.
And I wrote a song about Palin, that says how I feel about her. We won't go there.
Newt is as Newt does. I say no to Newt.
I like Ron Paul but I think he is a little to extreme to be President. His son is a tool.
I like Colin Powell he would be a good contender.

I think it's going to help Obama. It will provide him with the chance to seem presidential, and some people tend to back the sitting prez in times of disaster. I feel for everyone in the storm's path. Living just "up the road" from the FL line, we've sure had our share of storms. When I...

Can Mitt Romney beat Barack Obama in the next presidential election?Given that Romney is the front-runner, perhaps it's worth pondering.

This is from FORBES. I am posting the whole article for your consideration:In tonight’s debate we saw a transformed Barack Obama, and it made a very big difference. In the first debate Governor Mitt Romney was relaxed and confident and in command; Obama was practically absent. Tonight, Obama was on...

I am taken back to the site 'unskewed polls' where the conservatives were saying that the mainstream polling system was unfairly skewed in favor of Mr. Obama. So, I bet I could not find them now anywhere among all the bits and bites of the internet. Maybe you guys can add to this most interesting,...
