前国务卿鮑威尔支持欧巴马

   前国务卿鮑威尔支持欧巴马

   南郭点评:星期日(10月19日)共和党高层人物,麦肯总统竞选外交顾问之一,前国务卿鮑威尔在接受记者采访时公开支持欧巴马.他是麦肯近20年的老朋友,他称欧巴马作为总统将使全美跨越社会种族而更具多样性,并对解决国家面临的问题提供一个“冷静,克制,明智,稳定的方法”。他对近期麦肯竞选团队过分集注于欧巴马与1960年代的恐怖分子,William Ayers之间的关系表示不满,他说这超越了正当良好的政治斗争的底线。

   当得知鮑威尔支持欧巴马时,麦肯仅是耸耸肩膀表示并不出乎他意外,并称他们是多年的老朋友,他始终敬佩鮑威尔将军;“ 但是我很高兴有四位前国务卿(State Kissinger, Baker, Eagleburger and Haig)和200多位退休将军和海军上将支持他。我仍然并将继续敬佩国务卿鮑威尔。”

   不久前民主党一位高层人物公开支持麦肯,反映出美国政党政治的党争已不那么传统。事实上麦肯也非标准的共和党人,他强调美国国家利益高于党派利益。鮑威尔此举对麦肯选战肯定不利,是否会有更多的重量级人物公开支持欧巴马,若此势头继续上涨,麦肯的希望当然不妙。

   Powell Endorses Obama

   By Elisabeth Bumiller

   Updated WASHINGTON—Former Secretary of State Colin L. Powell endorsed Senator Barack Obama for president on Sunday morning as a candidate who was reaching out in a “more diverse and inclusive way across our society” and offering a “calm, patient, intellectual, steady approach” to the nation’s problems.

   The endorsement, on the NBC public affairs program “Meet the Press,” was a major blow to Senator John McCain, who has been a good friend of Mr. Powell for decades. Mr. Powell, a Republican, has advised Mr. McCain in the past on foreign policy.

   Mr. Powell told reporters after the taping of “Meet the Press” that he had been disturbed in recent weeks by the negative tone of Mr. McCain’s campaign, particularly its focus on Mr. Obama’s passing relationship with William Ayers, a 1960s radical and founder of the Weather Underground. The McCain campaign has sought to promote the idea that Mr. Obama is “palling around with terrorists,” in the words of Mr. McCain’s running mate, Gov. Sarah Palin, because of Mr. Obama’s weak links to Mr. Ayers.

   “I thought that was over the top,” Mr. Powell told reporters. “It was beyond just good political fighting back and forth.”

   

   Mr. Powell did offer Mr. McCain a small dose of solace by calling him a different kind of Republican, although one who would support the party’s standard positions.

   “As gifted as he is, he is essentially going to execute the Republican agenda, the orthodoxy of the Republican agenda, with a new face and a maverick approach to it, and he’d be quite good at it,” Mr. Powell said. “But I think we need a generational change.”

   In offering his endorsement, Mr. Powell becomes the highest profile Republican to add his support to the Democratic ticket. Aides said it was not yet known whether the two men would campaign together – or what Mr. Powell would do alone – in the final two weeks of the presidential campaign.

   Those talks, aides said, were underway on Sunday.

   Mr. Powell’s endorsement exposed a fundamental policy rift in the fractious Republican party foreign policy establishment between the so-called pragmatists, a number of whom have come to view the Iraq war or its execution as a mistake, and a competing camp, the neoconservatives, whose thinking dominated President Bush’s first term and played a pivotal role in building the case for war.

   Mr. Powell, who is of the pragmatist camp and has been critical of the Bush administration’s conduct of the war, was said by friends in recent months to be disturbed by some of the neoconservatives who have surrounded Mr. McCain as foreign policy advisers in his presidential campaign. The McCain campaign’s top foreign policy aide is Randy Scheunemann, who was a foreign policy adviser to former Senators Trent Lott and Bob Dole and who has longtime ties to neoconservatives. In 2002, Mr. Scheunemann was a founder of the hawkish Committee for the Liberation of Iraq and was an enthusiastic supporter of the Iraqi exile and Pentagon favorite, Ahmad Chalabi, who was viewed with suspicion and distaste at the State Department when Mr. Powell was secretary of state.

   Mr. Powell met with both Mr. McCain and Mr. Obama in June in preparation to make a possible endorsement. He has said repeatedly in recent months that he wanted to wait until after the political conventions and the presidential debates before making a decision.

   Mr. Powell’s support of Mr. Obama was not a surprise to people who know him well and within Washington’s foreign policy establishment, but the Obama campaign welcomed it as a powerful reassurance to voters about Mr. Obama’s national security credentials. Other voters, however, could discount it as an action of a disgruntled member of the Bush administration or as simply the support of one African American for another.

   Mr. Powell also told reporters on Sunday that he was troubled that a number of Americans believe that Mr. Obama is a Muslim, although he did not directly link that supposition to the McCain campaign. At a recent town-hall style meeting, Mr. McCain told an audience member who said she thought that Mr. Obama was an “Arab,” “no, ma’am, he’s a decent family man.”

   “These are the kinds of images going out on Al Jazeera that are killing us around the world,” Mr. Powell said. “And we have got to say to the world it doesn’t make any difference who you are and what you are. If you’re an American you’re an American.”

   On Fox News Sunday, Mr. McCain shrugged off the endorsement by Mr. Powell.

   “Well, I’ve always admired and respected General Powell,’’ he said. “We’re longtime friends. This doesn’t come as a surprise. But I’m also very pleased to have the endorsement of four former Secretaries of State, State Kissinger, Baker, Eagleburger and Haig and I’m proud to have the endorsement of well over 200 retired army generals and admirals. I respect and continue to respect and admire Secretary Powell.’’

   Mr. Obama called General Powell at 10 a.m. to thank him for the endorsement and told him “how honored he was to have it,” said Robert Gibbs, a senior adviser to Mr. Obama. The two spoke about 10 minutes.

   “He said he looked forward to taking advantage of his advice in the next two weeks and hopefully over the next four years,” Mr. Gibbs said.
