Hello everyone!


Just watching Sky News and then the blasted Breaking News thingy came up!
All is well though. The first Missle cases, filled with Mustard Gas, are being destroyed 90 miles north of Baghdad and Colin Powell is being interrogated by these bunch of guys somewhere?

Just to head straight to the point!

Do you think that Colin Powell would make a good President?


I think so! On watching the news he clearly stated that he didn't want war, but understood that it may be impossible to avoid if things don't go to plan.

My feelings were telling me that here is a man, who had been to war, seen people die; try and get the UN and NATO to agree on the course of action!

I can understand that it may not be easy, but if they would listen to everyones argument and put their diffrences aside, then there may be a chance?

Colin Powell is aware of the difficulty of the command discisions and he is aware that, during war time, a good command structure is vital to the victory of the war!

What does everyone else think?

I am fairly middle of the road maybe even a tad left politically and even I would vote for Powell. He seems to be very levelheaded and intelligent. I have heard however, that his wife has had several nervous breakdowns and that the main reason he would not run would be the fear of the stress it would put on his wife. It's a shame, I would love to see a Powell/McCain ticket myself.

Powell/McCain would get my vote as well but we aren't that lucky. plus, Powell isn't really a politican (don't know if that's a good or bad thing). he seems reluctant to run for a political office and more often than not appears like he would rather be left alone to go fishing. don't know what we would do without his calm elegant presence, though. after watching Rummy spit fire and hearing Dubya pause every third word its nice to see someone in the administration that can actually speak. after watching him testify before the UN last week i almost believed war was necessary.

Powell is a good counterbalance to the more vocal hawks in Bush's camp.
I believe that if he ran, he could very well be the first black president of this great country.

I'm a liberal but if I could vote I'd go with a Powell/some decent running mate pairing myself. As long as he didn't pull a Shrub and put some heavily oppresive Conservatives in office.
