I COMPLAINED...UNTIL... You know the phrase, "I complained that I had no shoes until I met a man who had no feet." Well, how about: "I complained about Colin Powell until President Bush replaced him with Condoleezza Rice."
WASTED POLITICAL CAPITAL. My complaints about Powell were that he did not confront the Bush regime more frequently, more vehemently, more stridently than he did. I think he allowed himself to be used toward some very ungodly and ideals-negating ends. He should have resigned in protest two years ago. But he is apparently a "good soldier." Talk about "political capital" that has been wasted. But Powell's most influential days may be yet to come.
