Don't Read Too Much Into His Comment About 2012 Race, Powell Says
Though he said this week that he hasn't decided who he'll vote for in the 2012 presidential race, former Secretary of State Colin Powell said today that shouldn't be seen as some sort of message about his opinion of President Obama — the Democrat who Republican Powell famously endorsed in 2008.
"I'm always undecided in every election" until he knows who the candidates are, Powell told NPR's Steve Inskeep.
"I always measure each candidate against what I think the country needs at that time and I will vote for the person who I think is most qualified."
Since he doesn't yet know who's running against the president, his decision will come "in due course," Powell added.
There's more from Steve's interview with Powell over at The Two-Way. And Morning Edition is planning to broadcast the conversation Friday.
