I have great resprect for the guy, of course. but he’s been on the wrong side of bush/rice/rumsfeld since day one.
he has almost no power, and all the important people are ignoring him now.
I can’t help thinking that if I were colin powell
, I’d have arranged a graceful exit by now. The only thing I can come up with is that he is hanging on out of a duty to his country… “retiring? now would show weakness.” I think this is the reason why he he is still nominally “secretary of state”.
