Breaking: Fox News and New York Times contributor Bill Kristol reports George W. Bush’s former Secretary of State Colin Powell is expected to endorse Sen. Barack Obama for president.
“He may well give a speech at the Democratic convention explaining his endorsement of Obama,” Kristol said, citing inside sources. “For whatever reason I think he has decided he’s going to endorse Obama. I think [Powell] has a high respect for Senator McCain, they go back a long way.” Kristol continued, “This is not an absolute done deal, but these people are very confident that Powell will endorse Obama.”
> Update: Powell tells ABC News: “I do not have time to waste on Bill Kristol’s musings. I am not going to the convention. I have made this clear.” But Powell did not take any follow-up questions about whether he would endorse Obama.
