McCain vs. Colin Powell and Leadership Factor

Colin Powell, soldier and statesman has condemned McCain's use of robo-calls as a means to divide the country by inference along racial lines. America is a land of opportunity, inclusion and we used to be proud of our status in the world. This is the main reason so many people from all walks of life flock to our shores.

Powell was born in Harlem, New York to two Jamaican immigrants said that Obama is a transformational figure that has earned his support over several months. Whereas McCain demonstrated poor judgment in his pick of Sarah Palin as Vice-President.

On MSNBC today, a Former National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski says among other things that McCain is unpredictable, veers, we waited for the British to act and we followed, and we waited for the French to suggest a summit and we're following so we are in deep crisis with no real leadership.

If we as a people are going to ignore some of the best brains in the country and act contrary to good judgment, we would be perpetrating an inexcusable injustice to our young children, the ones that now have no say in this process and we have to act on their behalf.

McCain may be erratic but his most dangerous quality is the one that Former National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski identified - he's unpredictable - this is one that we cannot afford or play roulette with at this point in our history.
