Response to Fearless (Reply #9)

16. I find that extremly implausible

 

Of course when it comes to unrealistic personal ambitions, I wouldn't put anything past a public figure like him. But I highly doubt he's angling for a spot on a ticket, especially the Republican one. Mitt has to shore up his base with a strong conservative. Somebody who endorsed Obama in 2008 is pretty much the opposite of that. Powell's never struck me as a genius, but even he has to know that.

I suspect he's angling for attention and trying to restore his credibility after his disastrous turn as SOS.

*On Edit*

And pimp his new book that I'm sure tries to make himself look good.
