    it was inevitable - the Powell doctrine dictates that no military conflict should be entered upon without OVERWHELMING levels of force - the rest of the White House crapped on Powell's doctrine and this is the result.

    the real tragedy is this only means promotion for incompetants such as Condi Rice.

    Powell served his country well. I hope to see him in the presidential mix for 2008. Changeover in the cabinet is expected in a second term. I hope they give Condi Rice a chance in his vacant position. She is well deserving.

    Maybe he is fed up with their crap and will write a book outing all the frauds in the administration.

    [quote][b]..............Allison said Powell's resignation should come as no surprise to those who have watched as the secretary tired of battles against Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld (search), whose national security and foreign policy views often won administration approval over Powell's more diplomatic approach.

    Among those disputes was whether Al Qaeda and deposed Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein were linked. At the United Nations, Powell also staked his reputation on intelligence data that showed Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. Those weapons have not been found.

    "His credibility has gone down considerably over the last couple years to the point that he and his staff have largely been engaged in, let's say, hit-and-run tactics against a more powerful secretary of defense," FOX News contributor and former ambassador Mark Ginsberg said.

    "He [and Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage (search)] thought the White House was far too peppered with ideologues," said Chicago Tribune editor James Warren......................[/b][/quote]

    His wife threatened to leave him if he ran for president in 96, fearing that he&#39;d get assasinated. I seriously think this is the last you&#39;ll ever see of Colin Powell in the political spotlight.

    I think he&#39;s great, but something tells me he hasn&#39;t been involved in things for the last three years or so.
