Obama's One-Two Punch

Does Obama have McCain on the ropes? Did his one-two Powell punch all but KO McCain?

Obama's One-Two Punch

Boy, that's a tough one. I was terribly disappointed in Powell. Not sure if I see it as a KO. Depends on how much value the general public places on Powell's endorsement.

The endorsement was bad enough, but I was also considering the announcement that Powell would be an advisor to Obama if he becomes President.

I only heard the endorsement, I didn't realize Powell agreed to be an advisor if Obama was elected. In fact I thought Powell just recently made a statement that he did not want any position. Maybe I misunderstood.

I am not sure, what I read was that Obama said that Powell would be an advisor, formal or informal.

You can't always take what Obama says at face value.
