In the past couple of days, John McCain has picked up Virginia and Nevada in the Real Clear Politics Average of Polls. Also, in most states he is not yet winning, McCain has slashed Obama’s lead. It’s been a good run for McCain the past two weeks or so. That is probably why Obama is trotting out old Colin Powell to endorse him. He needs to stop the bleeding fast. Obama would have loved to have kept Powell’s endorsement in his pocket for a later date.
And by the way, there goes Powell’s credibility. Picking a presidential candidate because of his race? Is that the way it’s done in the military? Well, Powell always said he believed in affirmative action, but who knew he would apply it to something as important as the presidential election.
