This is just dumb:
As the Presidential candidates ponder potential running mates, a new Zogby International telephone poll shows many voters would be more inclined to vote for Democratic Sen. Barack Obama if he were to select retired four-star general and former Secretary of State Colin Powell as his running-mate.
If Obama were to choose Powell, 42% of likely voters nationwide said it would make them more likely to support the Democratic candidate - as did 42% of Democrats and 43% of political independents.
Sorry, but I'm a realist. I don't care how much foreign-policy & military experience Colin Powell has, I don't think that America is ready for a Black president, much less two Blacks on the same ticket. It's the bias and naivete of the liberal press that just makes uninformed people believe anything they read.
