    I can't believe this.  Colin Powell has plenty to answer for.  He made a terrible tragic mistake on Iraq.  Obama was obviously aware of Powell's public position on Iraq at the time and he rejected it.  Others, including John Edwards, Hillary Clinton, Chris Dodd and John Kerry failed to show such good judgment at the time.  (Every one of them is a good Democrat and I'd take any of them as President over anyone in the GOP field.)  What reason is there to believe that Obama can't distinguish between any good advice Powell has to offer and the advice that we should reject?  He did it before, which is more than a lot of other smart, capable people can say.
