Republicans "in the tank" for Obama

There are lots of ways to look at former Secretary of State Colin Powell's announcement this morning on Meet the Press that he is endorsing Sen. Barack Obama over his friend of 25 years, Sen. John McCain. One way might be "black dude endorses other black dude, big whoop." Please promptly smash yourself in the nuts with a ball peen hammer if this was your reaction. Another way to look it is that the highest-profile Republican to-date has just endorsed the democratic candidate for president, and that Republican is a former four-star general, National Security Advisor under President Reagan, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff under President George H.W. Bush and Secretary of State under President George W. Bush. Another way would be to think just how far we have come, and how spectacular and wonderful this great nation of ours is that only 44 years since the Equal Rights Act, the most well-respected Republican in the entire country is a black man, and he just endorsed the most widely-respected Democrat in the country for president, and he too is a black man. The way I look it is that this 7:08 are the best I have spent in ages.
