The Right Answer Given by Colin Powell.

What was most important about former Secretary of State Colin Powell's endorsement of Obama on Meet the Press was not the actual endorsement, I thought but rather this great comment on the recent developments in the campaign :
"I'm also troubled by, not what Senator McCain says, but what members of the [Republican] Party say... such things as 'Well, you know that Mr Obama is a Muslim'.
"Well the correct answer is, 'He's not a Muslim, he's a Christian, he's always been a Christian'.

But the really right answer is, "What if he is?' Is there something wrong with being a Muslim in this country? The answer is 'No', that's not America."

Exactly what McCain should have said last week.... :

I was surprised that no one else seemed to notice. What a relief that finally somebody said something. It was about time!

the best answer imho is well he is actually a Christian but what if he was a Muslim?

Politically it would be unfair for mcain to imply that the big O was a Muslim.
