Today on Meet the Press Colin Powell, with his stately wisdom, set the record straight about President Obama and dismissed what Newt Gingrich stated about Obama this past week. Former President Bill Clinton was also interviewed and dismissed what Newt Gingrich said. I was encouraged by this because I really was getting concerned that no one of any caliber was stepping up to the plate to denounce these racist, ignorant statements about the President. It was truly a glimmer of sanity. I hope there is more sanity on the way.
