This endorsement has been quoted and pushed throughout the Media, as the most significant endorsement of the campaign race. Well one would think that this endorsement would alleviate any doubt of Barack Obamas credentials and experience. While pondering if its possible, consider this. Colin Powell served as not only United States Secretary of State, but also General of the Army,National Security Advisor, and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of staff. It's very clear that this endorsement covers a vast spectrum of positions within the government. This is an endorsement coming from someone with plenty more experience than both of the candidates, which could lead to even more middle of the road voters to follow.
Colin Powell stated early on in the election, that a large part of his endorsement was going to be based on whom the candidates chose as their Vice President and or running mate. Powell is quoted as saying "McCain picked a running mate that is not ready to be President" this reiterates what a lot of the GOP and voters have been pushing.
So what can really do to fight back? Well considering his ad campaign as of late has hurt more than helped. His choice of VP seems too be loosing her prowess.It seemst the latest McCain tactic is to go after Obama's tax policies, describing them as "socialism. has been in the same headlines and statements with Socialism as of late. Could this be a lifeline for the McCain campaign? Well, we'll all see very soon. In the following weeks, the Obama campaign should be throwing a huge wave of campaign ads. We'll have to see if John McCain and the Republican party can stay afloat. article by, Political Junkie
