Powell lists Supreme Court as factor in Obama endorsement

You have undoubtedly seen the headlines about former Secretary of State Colin Powell’s endorsement of Sen. Barack Obama for president over GOP candidate Sen. John McCain. But one of the reasons for that endorsement, Powell said on Meet the Press Sunday, had to do with the Supreme Court.

Although Powell said he is still a Republican, he told Tom Brokaw on the show: “I would have difficulty with two more conservative appointments to the Supreme Court, but that’s what we’d be looking at in a McCain administration.”
