No more questions after Powell endorsement, says Biden
From CNN Political Producer Alexander Marquardt
TACOMA, Washington (CNN) Joe Biden thanked Colin Powell for endorsing Barack Obama Sunday, saying that with his choice of Obama over John McCain, questions about the Illinois senators ability to be commander-in-chief will be put to rest.
From the very beginning, this Republican party has tried to suggest that Barack Obama, Senator Barack Obama, wasnt ready to be commander-in-chief, said the Delaware senator to more than 11,000 supporters in a minor league ballpark, his biggest crowd to date when campaigning without Obama.
With all the three and four star generals, with the former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the former National Security Adviser, the former Secretary of State, one of the most respected men who have ever worn the uniform, endorsing Barack Obama over John McCain today, no more questions! Barack Obama will be a commander-in-chief we can all respect!
Biden later noted that an agreement between the US and Iraq on a timetable for withdrawal of US troops is close to being signed, something Obama has long called for.
John McCain talks about leadership, said Biden, Let me remind you, whose idea was that? Barack Obama's. John McCain's the only odd man out now, along with Governor Palin.

The mere thought of Obama being commander of our troops is enough to make me vomit. It is unthinkable. He doesn’t know the first thing about honor.
we need to get the list of real generals who support MCCain up there....somebody should point that out to McCain...
Powell obviously believes in the ultimate affirmative action - if you’re a black President it’s ok to accuse the soldiers of air-raiding villages, etc. etc. Of course BO should be held to a lower standard - he’s black, and he means well. /s
I’m not surprised that Powell has endorsed a Chicago street thug over a real American hero either. “How ‘bout some ‘blow’ General? Then we’ll go help ACORN register some more ‘voters’.”
And yet Palin routinely pulls double that number all day long.
Sure Plugs...no more questions. Well maybe just one...why won’t Barack Obama release his long vault birth certificate to judge R. Barclay Surrick and Philip Berg?
The WISH there were no more questions about Obama’s character and associations with this endorsement, but it doesn’t matter to most Americans, because everyone knows it’s about race.
EVERYONE knows it.
NY Times apparently not taking anything for granted. Rehashing hitpiece on McCain’s health according to Huffington Post: http://www.mofopolitics.com/2008/10/19/ny-times-to-hit-mccain-on-health-cancer/
Schwarzkoff is one... (sp?)
By Biden’s logic-if RuPaul, the black transvestite endorses Shabazz Obama,
does that now make Obama a transvestite ??
Hes going to quit in Iraq just when we are winning!
I am disappointed in Powell, but feel this says more about him and his issues than it does about McCain. Too bad the media is going to go ballistic on this. Thanks Colin. God Bless America.
How about just one more question Joe? Raila Odinga.
LOL! An incompetent boob general and SOS endorses bambi and this is supposed to remove all doubts about the dipster?
