Colin Powell, Ted Stevens, and Barack Obama

Filed under: — Different River @ 12:20 am

Gen. Colin Powell testified in defense of Sen. Ted Stevens at his corruption trial:

Colin Powell described Sen. Ted Stevens in court today as a “trusted individual” and a man with a “sterling” reputation.

“He was someone whose word you could rely on,” said Powell, secretary of state in President Bush’s first term, who self-deprecatingly described himself as someone who retired as the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and then “dabbled a bit in diplomacy.”

Then Sen. Stevens was convicted of bribery.

In between, Powell said similar things about Obama.
