"He may well give a speech at the Democratic convention explaining his endorsement of Obama," Kristol said, citing inside sources. "For whatever reason I think he has decided he's going to endorse Obama. I think [Powell] has a high respect for Senator McCain, they go back a long way." Kristol continued, "This is not an absolute done deal, but these people are very confident that Powell will endorse Obama."Then Powell's spokesperson strongly denied this almost-rumor ("may well"?). But if Powell endorses Obama and then Lieberman endorses McCain, everyone will see how good these candidates are at uniting with members of the opposite party who aren't actually really members of the opposite party, even in name.
