Powell 

Colin, Colin, Colin...

I am trying so hard to continue to like Colin Powell. The man is obviously in a tough spot.

I wonder if he keeps backing the administration because he's desperate to keep his job (unlikely, as he'd have a tidal wave of them rolling over him the minute he stepped down), really believes in the administration's policy (even though it takes a piss on his published doctrine and makes his job near impossible to do), or because he's the only one with the arm strength to keep the lunatics on a short enough leash to keep us from diving headlong into more optional wars we can't afford...

I'm guessing the latter.
