60 Second Politics

With just over two weeks left in the campaign, the candidates are hitting the trail hard and continued to make news over the weekend.

  • Former Secretary of State Colin Powell announced on NBC's "Meet the Press" that he plans to vote for Sen. Barack Obama. "I think he is a transformational figure, he is a new generation coming into, onto the world stage and the American stage, and for that reason I'll be voting for Senator Barack Obama," said Powell.

  • When asked about the endorsement, McCain offered this: "Well, I have always admired and respected General Powell. We are longtime friends. This doesn't come as a surprise. But I am also very pleased to have the endorsement of four former secretaries of state ... and I am proud to have the endorsement of well over 200 retired army generals and admirals," McCain said, noting the support offered by Henry Kissinger, James Baker, Lawrence Eagleburger and Alexander Haig.
