I'm not making that assumption at all. I suspect Powell's politics are more in-line with the Republican party than the Democratic party. Not so much with the Bush wing of the Republican party, probably more aligned with where McCain sits on the spectrum. Although I suspect that Powell could have won the presidency on either ticket before W put the stain on his reputation.

I agree with the idea that Powell has laid low and distanced himself from politics long enough that he would be able to re-enter the political arena and get his second chance. I also agree with Ron that he probably doesn't want to.

I believe he's likely to endorse Obama, and on the basis of demeanor, a quality they both share and greatly value.
