I really like and respect Colin Powell. I never understood why he was appointed Secretary of State rather than Secretary of Defense, but I suppose that doesn’t matter now.
It will be interesting to see what he does next. I heard speculation this morning that by law he is eligible for appointment as Supreme Court justice or Speaker of the House of Representatives. I was amazed to learn that Supreme Court justices don’t have to be lawyers and the Speaker doesn’t have to be a Congressman.
