Road Blog: Barack on Colin Powell's Endorsement

This morning on his way to a rally in Fayetteville, North Carolina Barack received the news that Colin Powell had endorsed his candidacy for president. General Powell is an extraordinary American, having served in our armed forces and in two presidential administrations with distinction.

Barack called the General to thank him and said that he looked forward to taking advantage of his advice in the next two weeks and hopefully over the next four years.

In his endorsement, Powell called for a politics of unity and spoke out against the politics of division. Barack expanded on these themes in front of the 10,000 folks who crowded into Fayetteville Coliseum (per Captain R.A. Sullivan of the Fayetteville Fire Department) and acknowledged what an honor it was to have the confidence of a man like Colin Powell.
