For Conservatives, the choice is obvious: it has to be Barack Obama - Telegraph

I guess the Republicans can do it too!!!11!!!

McCain's silence on this speaks volumes.
He's not repudiating this? No apology?

Ronald Reagan gives conservatives boners, so he's saying the fact that Obama cites Ronald Reagan (he does?) should clinche his argument for conservatives to vote for Obama.

Yeah, a few weeks ago, Joe McCain---Grumpy Grandpa Walnuts' younger brother---called Northern Virginia "communist country."

We here in NOVA give him a unified middle finger on that one.

CNN Political Ticker: All politics, all the time Blog Archive - Obama shatters monthly fundraising record - Blogs from CNN.com

DUNN, North Carolina (CNN) – Barack Obama’s campaign had a record-breaking September, hauling in over a $150 million last month — a new high-water mark in campaign fundraising history.

In a video to supporters, Obama Campaign Manager David Plouffe said a record 632,000 new donors gave to the campaign, with an average contribution under $100, although several multi-million dollar fundraising events last month did pad that total. Over three million individual donors have given so far.

The man is a machine. In the debate, McCain tried to paint the fact that Obama has spent so much money as a negative thing against Obama---that he's a "big spender." The fact of the matter is, it's the American people as a whole who are the big spenders in this campaign. Yet, the beauty is that none of us really are---the average donation continues to be under $100.

I don't care whether you like Obama or not.....but you have to be impressed by the beauty of his campaign.

Colin Powell just gave a very eloquent and intelligent endorsement of Barack Obama.


Video to come later. It's brilliant how he breaks down the 2 campaigns and the 2 candidates. Come November 5 I think many people will be citing the same reasons Colin Powell did to explain why they voted for Obama

I can't wait to watch this! It comes on later (10:30) in DC for some reason, so I've got an hour to go...


it doesn't make sense to my why washington, dc of all places would show Meet the Press late...

i hope Powell will be given the chance to atone for his participation in the Bush White House.

this is one step forward.

Powell is calling out the GOP on being racist xenophobes and for selecting Palin.

I do not believe he needs to atone. I believe he stayed as long as he could for the good of the country. I believe he was given the same bogus bullshit intelligence that the congress was. I believe he is a hero and needs to atone for NOTHING. Just because he endorses Obama, does not mean he is on the road to recovery.

The record shows he was a voice of reason behind the scenes.

No, he is calling out members of his party. He is still a member of the party. He is not calling out the entire GOP.

I believe Powell went along with some things despite huge doubts. I believe that on the inside he knew what he was doing is wrong. I believe he has major regrets about that and he will have to live with it.

Ultimately we are all projecting. I just think that he knew better and did nothing or didn't do enough. And has the conscience for regret whereas others don't.

it's less that he needs to atone and more that he wants to atone.

as he should.

I agree with this assessment 100%.
