Is former Sec. of State going to support a Democrat for President 2008? Powell, who in 1996 was encouraged to run as a Republican for President, appeared on Meet the Press this past Sunday.
"I'm going to support the best person that I can find who will lead this country for the eight years beginning in January of 2009," said Powell. He went onto say that he has advised Democrat Barak Obama on foreign policy but would give advice to anyone that asks him.
