A Dream for Some, A Nightmare to Others: Obama Says Powell Will Have a Role in His Administration

October 20, 2008

On the “Today Show,” Obama said new BFF Colin Powell will have a role in his administration, whether it be formal or informal. America’s two most beyond race brothers chilling in the White House; planning world domination. Scary? Not?

This is of course campaign fluff to add exclamation point to Powell’s endorsement, made yesterday. I don’t doubt that Obama will be calling Powell for his assessments as much as he does Richard Lugar (Bill Clinton, not so much). Given Powell’s comments yesterday and his tribulations as Dubya’s Secretary of State, I don’t imagine Powell would take anything formal, certainly not Chief of Staff. Yet anything below Secretary of State would be a demotion. Perhaps Obama would cook up some special sauce like Clinton did for David Gergen. Then again, if you watch CNN you’d think Gergen might want that for himself.
