Remember back in 1996, when Republicans flirted with the idea of nominating Colin Powell to be the vice presidential nominee?
Laura Ingraham wrote then that Powell is liberal on issue after issue -- affirmative action, the second amendment, school prayer, abortion and the Contract With America. The man led a distinguished military career, but the notion that he embraces conservative tenets was as flat out wrong in 1996 as it is today.
His endorsement of Sen. Barack Obama, therefore was entirely predictable, and inconsequential.
