It all depends on which Gen Powell we would get. There really seems to be 2 of them. Would we get the one that helped convince the Bush administration that war with Iraq was necessary,or the one that endorses a second Obama term after no real success in the first?

Psycologically, there are 2 Gen Colin Powell's.
The one that is severely depressed and why he didn't run for President and the other is the one who's very capable of running for President.

I can see the headlines now...

Powell didn't convince Bush of anything. He was givin miss information from CIA that Chaney cooked up and it was the U.N. that he was trying to convince. You should read his book.

So he acted on the same mis-information that Pres Bush did, yet Gen Powell gets a pass? I just want to make sure I get this straight.

He acted on what he thought was true and later found out it was Chaney that hung it out to dry. If you remember, Powell quit before the second term. He tried to tell Bush if you break a country you buy it. Bush went in with no real plan to rebuild it and it took us ten years to get out. The deal breaker was when Bush signed a tready with Japan stating that we would go to war with China if they attackted Japan. What, are we going to try to barrow money from China to go to war with them.

Don't mention Donald Rumsfeld. He had nothing to do with Iraq.

We need a guy like Thomas Jefferson, but they would paint him to be like Romney. Much is made of his slaves but he knew how to create jobs and sale America's goods.
After the goof balls we put out there last election, we need a candidate that at least looks like a leader.
