Colin Powell came out and endorsed Senator Barack Obama's campaign Sunday morning, on Meet the Press. I'm not sure if this will have an impact or not. We will have to look at polling in Red States to see if the Powell's announcement is enough to change who Republicans in those states are going to vote for. This morning two Las Vegas Conservative talk show hosts, Heidi Harris of KDWN and Allan Stock of KXNT, stated that it would not have an impact on the outcome of the election. Harris even went as far to say that anyone under 30 has no idea who Colin Powell is. I think that the ship is sinking for the McCain campaign and this is huge for Obama. Couple this with Google's Chief Executive Eric Schmidt endorsing Obama, and it could be a large margin of victory for the Illinois Senator. Lets just hope that all of the young people put down the bongs and PBR on November 4th and get out and vote.
