Et Tu, Brute??


Colin Powell, the man who delivered to the United Nations the U.S. case for war against Iraq, said he is going to vote for Barack Obama for president.

The former secretary of state for President Bush said the next individual to serve as president of the United States will have to reach out to the world community, and he believes Obama has both style and substance to be successful in that role

"I think he is a transformational figure coming into the world stage and for that reason I'll be voting for Barack Obama," Powell, who also served as President George H.W. Bush's Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman, said on NBC's "Meet the Press."

A spokesman at the Obama campaign told FOX News the candidate is pleased with the support.

"It was anticipated in some political circles, but I think it will be news to most Americans and it's good news to our campaign," said Obama adviser Brad Woodhouse.

Powell said with two weeks left until the election, he will not campaign for the Democratic presidential candidate.

No surprise that we couldn't expect Brokaw to ask Powell the hard questions:

Senator Obama would NOT be given a Top Secret clearance after an FBI investigationinto his past associations. Considering this fact, Mr. Powell, why should we trust him with the highest level of security information this nation has at this particular point in history?

More like the October forgone conclusion.
