Powell’s Endorsement, from a military point of view
That’s about how shocking General Powell’s endorsement of Barack Obama is, least it should be. Senator Lieberman, a moderate Democrat, endorsed Senator McCain and we all know how much of a staunch conservative Republican he is. In 1995, Colin Powell was seen, again as a potential running mate for Senator Bob Dole. However, Bob Dole would respond to the idea with the following (quoting the | Read More »
So what? and So what?
I shed no tears over the Powell endorsement. He is the wimpiest, most indecisive general we’ve had in my lifetime (back to Korean War) and a turncoat in the Bush administration, and to Republicans in general. And to you democrats who wish to gloat about this decision, how can you call him an “Uncle Tom” while he’s serving in one of the two loftiest positions | Read More »

True, there were only two (Bush in ’92; Dole in ’96), but it was still a necessary hurdle for McCain to cross. – Moe Lane Today the McCain-Palin team raked in a bonanza of endorsements. According to conventional | Read More »
Following are excerpts from a public address delivered by Libyan Leader Mu’ammar Al-Qadhafi marking the anniversary of the U.S. air raid on Libya. The address aired on Al-Jazeera TV on June 11, 2008: Mu’ammar Al-Qadhafi: It has been proven that there is no democracy in [the U.S.].

Do we care about editorial endorsements?
Every four years, at about this time of year, daily newspapers endorse one candidate for the Presidency or the other, and we know which candidate will be indorsed by what paper. The Seattle Times has editorially endorsed Obama – no surprise – and the New York Times will follow suit.
