Original Starting post for this thread:
Colin Powell

Wool gathering brought this thought..

Obama for the next four then Hilary vs Powell as an Eisenhower Republican (yes, in caps) in 2016 and Powell wins.

Imagine that... Two black men from opposing parties drag the country, kicking and screaming epithets in the name of Rush Almighty, back to the sane center where we can once again begin to govern ourselves rationally and resume being the great nation and beacon to world democracy that we were before the political process got hijacked by the radical evangelical right wing and neocons of a once respectable political party.

If this was the 90s... Maybe, but we have long forgotten about the first Iran war... The best video game war out there.

Sadly I must agree with TBR. Powell knows that he cannot win on the republican side and that the democrats are the only hope for any civilized nation.

Powell is likely one of the few generals that learned from his time as a general, understanding that if your economy is all about taking from the small people, the masses and returning only the minimum... You get Iraq or any other third world nation.

"... there is no way that an Independent could get the money needed to win a general... "

But what if he's already a general?

The primaries are all about the base.

There is no way that Powell could get the nomination.

And there is no way that an Independent could get the money needed to win a general...

No, Colin is a pragmatist, and can read the current situation better than most.

If he would run, it would be as a Democrat. He could win there. Not any way otherwise...

You don't think if had the balls to stand up early and declare himself an Eisenhower Republican and all that entails he would be able to claim a great swath of the middle and tell the right to go fuck itself, as we all should?

I think he could... but only as a reep...

There is no way that Colin Powell could be nominated in today's Republican party...

Simply his endorsement of Obama twice will disqualify him.

I was reading an online article that made a very good point about the current crop of Republicans.

"Conservatism can not fail, it can only be failed"

No matter what, if a conservative loses an election, the base will say he lost because he was not conservative enough.
