    VANCOUVER -- Colin Powell, the former Republican secretary of state, says he is not ruling out a vote for Barack Obama, the presumed Democratic nominee for president.

    While Mr. Powell served in the administrations of two Republican presidents, he suggested yesterday his support for presumed Republican nominee John McCain is not a forgone
    conclusion.

    He noted that although both he and Mr. Obama are black, he would not cast a vote for the Illinois senator on the basis of race. "I will vote for the individual I think that brings the best set of tools to the problems of 21st-century America and the 21st-century world regardless of party, regardless of anything else other than the most qualified candidate," Mr. Powell said at a news conference before delivering a speech to about 800 people attending a leadership forum at the Vancouver Convention Centre.

    "Both of them certainly have the qualifications to be the president of the United States, but both of them cannot be," he said.

    If you think there is one Black person in America that isn't going to vote for Obama then I have a bridge I want to sell you.

    Some how I don't see Thomas Sowell or Herman Cain voting for him. I know that is only two but there will be others.

    I think the General is a very intelligent person and will vote as his conscience guides him.;)
