This endorsement is a big deal. Also, see what Powell says about Mitt Romney and how he’s all over the place on foreign policy. That confirms everything President Obama has been saying about Romney and his constant flip flops.
Former Bush press secretary Scott McClellan will endorse Barack Obama. He joins former Secretary of State Colin Powell in backing Obama.
This obviously won’t have as much effect as the Powell endorsement, but it adds to the narrative of Republicans coming out for Obama. Earlier today, several granddaughters of Barry Goldwater endorsed Obama as well.
Powell cites Obama’s temperament and intellectual vigor, while noting McCain’s erratic response to the financial crisis. He also cites the selection of Sarah Palin as a reason to vote for Obama.
