Colin Powell endorses Obama
This couldn't have come at a worse time for McCain. Additionally you can see how Colin Powell directly criticizes the McCain campaign for its divisive negative ads and smears. This is strong stuff and will dominate the news cycle for a few days, maybe a week. Those are days McCain can't afford.
Colin Powell's endorsement directly attacks the Ayers assault that McCain is playing. It says that a 4 star general, who is a lifelong republican is endorsing Obama, that Obama is a patriot and the best man for the job as President of the US.
McCain is now feeling the gut punch. I don't think he will recover from this, he was already way behind.
