Yay Colin Powell! He just endorsed Barak Obama on Meet the Press in a very eloquent, thoughtful manner. Add that to the number of newspapers that have likewise sided with Obama - Chicago Tribune, LA Times,Washington Post - things look better and better. That brings the tally to 55 newspapers for Obama, 16 for McCain. I hope that matters, tho' I don't know how much attention people pay to endorsements.
UPDATE (9:45 am)-- even if Powell's endorsement doesn't help Obama directly, it was so fun to watch the guys on "Fox and Friends" go apoplectic, that it was TOTALLY worth it. What a bunch of boobs.
