Pro's Whites Like Powell. You Can't find a better military Mind. Unlike most republicans he showed some humanity and remorse about the war. His statements latelty such as; "I will vote regardless of party" and, "we should focus on creating wealth for all people in the world" .Suggest that he is more to the center. Another black man in line after obama. He would balance the ticket with his extensive foreign policy experience. He has praised Obama of late. He is smart. He came out in support of Afirmitive action when the con-servatives tried to end it. Cons Whites may be apprehensive about voting for two Black men. He did support the war before he opposed it (sound familiar)? He is republican. IMHO i think he'd be a great pick.
