Colin Powell Mentioned As Possible McCain VP Pick
Retired Gen. Colin Powell is among the potential running mates who have been considered by John McCain, campaign advisers told Politico.
Powell was among the possible vice presidential choices the Arizona Republican senator was thinking of when he said he would not rule out a supporter of abortion rights, a key adviser said.
Campaign officials say McCain has told them not to discuss the process.
Powell, who was President Bush’s first secretary of state, would add celebrity to the ticket, as well as reinforce McCain’s strength as a potential commander in chief, which his campaign considers to be one of his chief assets.
