Colin Powell endorses Barack Obama

Yesterday, former U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell, a Republican, endorsed Democratic candidate Barack Obama for President despite long-standing support for John McCain. While I agree with the reasoning in many of the statements he made as to why he has endorsed Obama instead of McCain, it is unclear what, if any, impact this will have on the U.S. Presidential election.

Given Powell’s stature in U.S. politics, it can only help Obama and hurt McCain. As for his statements themselves, please see the 7-minute YouTube video below.
