If Powell is President of USA, then USA will not be USA anymore. You know what I mean.
I know what you mean... maybe in the future when USA is more united than divided.
Actually I mean the way around. USA will be down from a Superpower to just a Major power. Or sure you are saying the opposite than what you really mean.

That's just silly.
Just because you're a super power doesn't mean you always engage in war. It can happen, but just because you are less aggressive doesn't mean you're that much weaker.
The US would continue to be a super power under the presidency of Colin Powell.

If he ran he'd have my vote.

It's been said that the best leaders in politics would be the ones who do not want it. A perfect example of this is George Washington. He wanted nothing more to return to his farm and he was quite reluctant to be the nation's first President.

Powell, others to leave Bush administration

There was conservative radio stations talking about it this morning. The host seemed to think Powell left because his experience in warfare was ignored before Iraq. I would be made if a civilian said I was wrong about the military and I had 35 years of experience and 2 wars under my belt.

Powell left. He is really a good guy, one of the few good men.
