Colin Powell endorses Hillary Clinton.

Courtesy of CNN: 

Former Republican Secretary of State Colin Powell said Tuesday he'll vote for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, a high-profile snub of his party's standard-bearer, Donald Trump. 

Powell, who also served in the Reagan and George H.W. Bush administrations, backed President Barack Obama in both the 2008 and 2012 campaigns. He announced his plan to a Long Island group during a luncheon. 

The announcement was confirmed by Powell's chief of staff, Peggy Cifrino.

I don't think that this should really come as much of a surprise despite the fact that Powell was a little irritated that Hillary pulled him into the private email server debate.

After all he also endorsed President Obama in both 2008 and 2012 and his feelings about Trump were already exposed in one of his own hacked emails: 

"Trump is nuts. Everybody wants me to speak out, but I will pick the time and place for maximum effect like I did in 2008 and 2012. Right now, Trump is his worst own enemy."

Still it's yet another feather in Hillary's cap and another reminder that those who understand the job of President the best do not want Donald Trump anywhere near it.

    How can Donald Trump keep America safe if he couldn't carry out a nuclear preemptive strike against the country who destroyed his Walk Of Fame Star?

      "...he couldn't carry out a nuclear preemptive strike... "

      who says he didn't? Maybe Mr. Drumpf just doesn't like to brag about his achievements...

      You're kidding, right?

    Just two days ago I heard lamentations that if the R's had only run Colin Powell, he would have beaten Hillary (he wouldn't have - see "WMD").

    How much do you want to bet that they throw him under the bus within an hour?

      "During a press conference in Manhattan, Trump thanked the AAB for their support and promised to put the Amish to work maintaining government buildings, which he said would save taxpayers millions because “the Amish do great work for a very low price.”"


      Not to mention work comp injury claims on Amish jobsites are reduced because they have no extension cords to trip over!

      The Amish don't even vote! That should have been everyone's first clue that this was a bogus article :-)

    In North Dakota: "Trump has invested between $500,000 and a million dollars in Energy Transfer Partners, which owns Dakota Access, LLC. The company’s sole project, the Dakota Access pipeline, has been the subject of protests across the country." Drumpf" intends to lift restrictions on the production of oil, natural gas, and “clean” coal. He’s also vowed to lift “roadblocks” to “vital” energy infrastructure projects, “like the Keystone pipeline.”
    “To many people, the military tactics being used in North Dakota are reminiscent of the tactics used against protestors during the civil rights movement some 50 years ago.”

    OT, but this explains how Trump got the idea to run. Uncanny.

    LOL, when I typed "Trump", spellcheck changed it to "derelict"

      If true I wonder how that is going to effect the numbers.

      I think quite a few of those supporting Johnson are those that can't stand Trump or Clinton. So endorsing Clinton is noble but probably as ineffectual as the rest of their campaign.

      I think his supporters may just vote for him anyway since he never had a chance to begin with and theirs was a protest vote. Jill Stein supporters are also protest voters.

      So while it's interesting they conceded this early, I really don't think it's going to move the numbers much.

    Palin tweeted a birthday message about her mother's birthday (it's also Hillary's) in the same I'm-so-clever (not) way she wrote about Pres Obama's half-brother the other day. Poor Sarah, this is all she has.

    Powell has long been ingrained into the Washington establishment tea set and intends to stay there. Party affiliations are really just a mere window sticker for these people. This should really be a surprise to nobody.
