Powell Endorsement & $150 Million

10.19.2008


Today was a good day for Obama. After the announcement that his campaign raised $150 million in September, which is just crazy, the predicted General Powell endorsement was made public on Meet The Press.
As I said before, I don't think this will do much for Obama. It might make a few Independents feel like this is a good nod in terms of leadership and foreign policy. It might make a few black conservatives who were on the fence because of the race issue decide to give Obama a chance.
This will be on the news for the next few days which helps Obama as well and if the McCain camp tries to go after Powell, it would be a disaster for them. Their best bet is to just acknowledge it and ignore it.
