More Powell spin

McCain seizes on Biden's comment about Obama

Democratic vice presidential candidate Joe Biden provided McCain an opening on a different issue — readiness to be president — when he told supporters at a weekend fundraiser: "Watch, we're gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy."

Funny that Biden would compare Obama to JFK during the Cuban Missile Crisis. I think history shows us that JFK was a hothead and had it not been for his brother would have attacked. I guess we already know that history is not Bidens strong point as well as spelling.

Obama gained a forceful rebuttal to those concerns over the weekend, when former Secretary of State Colin Powell, a retired four-star general and former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, endorsed Obama and attested to his readiness to be president.

Powell also criticized McCain's selection of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as his running mate, saying she failed to meet the primary qualification for a vice president: the ability to assume the presidency at any time.

So Palin fails to meet the primary qualifications but Obama does? Seriously?

Maybe Powell is just looking for his next job?

Obama: Powell will have a role in administration
