Colin Powell endorses Senator Barack Obama for President

Fmr. Sec. of State, General Colin Powell, a member of President Bush’s administration and a well-respected Republican, went on NBC’s Meet The Press Sunday to publicly endorse Sen. Obama for president. In the second part of Gen. Powell’s endorsement here, he speaks very eloquently regarding one of the common misconceptions regarding Sen. Obama : the myth that he is a Muslim. First and foremost, he’s a Christian, and secondly (and perhaps more importantly), why should it matter if he is a Muslim, or a Jew, or whatever, in this day and in this era??

You who believe in perpetuating rumor, conjecture or hatred should all be ashamed of yourselves, each and every one of you. From hatred breeds hatred, and from ignorance, only ignorance.

He also spoke of the “despicable … demagoguery,” in attempting to paste a terrorist label on the Illinois senator for his association with Vietnam-era radical Bill Ayers.
