Let the Brutal Disillusionment Begin!

On CNN yesterday, Colin Powell clearly hinted he may endorse Obama:

I am watching this race with the greatest of interest, and I know all of the leading candidates…

And I will ultimately vote for the person I believe brings to the American people the kind of vision the American people want to see for the next four years. A vision that reaches out to the rest of the world, that starts to restore confidence in America, that starts to restore favorable ratings to America.

Frankly, we’ve lost a lot in recent years. I am going to be looking for the candidate that seems to me to be leading a party that is fully in sync with the candidate, and a party that will also reflect America’s goodness and America’s vision…

I am a Republican, but I am keeping my options open at the moment.

Recall that Obama has met with Powell twice before to benefit from his advice.
