When I heard that Colin Powell was going to be on “Meet The Press” with Tom Brokaw this Sunday morning, I knew I would spend my Sunday watching all of the news networks to get the reaction on both sides of the political fence.
Well, my plan was almost ruined because I overslept so I missed a few minutes of Colin’s interview with Tom (luckily Youtube has everything). I am so happy that I heard him say:
“And I come to the conclusion that because of his ability to inspire, because of the inclusive nature of his campaign, because he is reaching out all across America, because of who he is and his rhetorical abilities – and we have to take that into account – as well as his substance – he has both style and substance – he has met the standard of being a successful president, being an exceptional president.
I think he is a transformational figure. He is a new generation coming into the … onto the world stage and on the American stage and for that reason, I’ll be voting for Senator Barack Obama.”
As Colin spoke, my ass was clinched the tightest it has even been ever. Even tighter than when I had run to the restroom at work the other day when I was suffering from an episode of explosive diarrhea!
After Colin made his definitive statement; Suite Suzy & I shouted out YES, high fived & kissed (morning breath and all) with so much excitement.
After our mini morning celebration, I asked Suite Suzy for some cheesy grits & eggs. She was like hell no, I have a headache. Then she rolled back over & fell asleep.
With two weeks left, the presidential race is far from over & we must not relax thinking that Barack has it in the bag because he does not. We must encourage our friends & family to get off their asses to go to the poll in 2 weeks.
This race has been so hot over the last several months but that was just the tip of the iceberg. This shit is really about to jump the fuck off, just wait & see!
