You know, when long-time conservative National Review contributer Christopher Buckley and Google CEO Eric Schmidt, a long-time high-profile fundraiser for the Democratic party, decided to publicly back Barack Obama, no one asked, “Was it race or merit?”  That’s the same question being asked of the far more moderate and respected former Secretary of State Colin Powell.  

Perhaps it goes deeper than race, The Media, to an issue of trust.  Afterall, Colin Powell was still workingas SoS during the early days of the Bush Administration and supported the president (though clearly skeptical), during Bush’s bid for war.  Powell was also keenly aware of Sen. Barack Obama’s firm stand against the war. 

It’s too late to alter our course in the east, but it’s not to late to alter the course that lay ahead.  That’s why it’s time for a candidate like Barack Obama.  And that’s why we’re seeing support across the board from people of all colors.  It’s time for this country to mend it’s wounds and come together; Democrat or Republican, Green Party or Libertarian, black or white, girl or boy.
