And finally…

In case you hadn’t heard… former SOS Colin Powell is not sitting quietly by after his endorsement of Sen. Obama.

Following his endorsement of Obama, Mr. Powell met up with some reporters outside the ‘Meet the Press’ studios… and when asked about the highly negative tone of the McCain campaign, Powell couldn’t hide his disappointment, saying; “And now I guess the message this week is we're going to call him a socialist. Mr. Obama is now a socialist, because he dares to suggest that maybe we ought to look at the tax structure that we have. Taxes are always a redistribution of money. Most of the taxes that are redistributed go back to those who pay them, in roads and airports and hospitals and schools. And taxes are necessary for the common good. And there's nothing wrong with examining what our tax structure is or who should be paying more or who should be paying less, and for us to say that makes you a socialist is an unfortunate characterization that isn't accurate.”

Well said Mr. Powell, keep it up.
