This little video just made my day. Former Secretary of State Colin Powell has finally come out and endorsed Barack Obama for president in one of the most well-stated descriptions of the campaign and current political culture that I’ve ever heard. I’m so happy to hear a prominent Republican come out in favor of intellectual vigor and even-handed diplomacy over fear- and hate-mongering. People of all political stripes should watch this clip; it’s well worth seven minutes of your life.
