She died of cancer. If there is such a thing as karma, you'd better hope it doesnt' get your loved ones. Casting ugliness on the world will eventually bite you in the ass.

This is a very conflicted time for anyone in this position. I hope he can grieve once this is all over. I know how much she helped shape him into the person he is today.

Win or lose I am sure having his grandmother see him make history meant a lot, and any of us who have lost a parent or grandparent know what a terrible loss it is.

Politics aside, tonight he is a guest in our city...and my thoughts and prayers are with him.

My heart goes out to him and his family at this difficult time. So sad.
I thought she would hold on til he became our next President. She will be with him in spirit, I am sure of it.

There are a lot more prominent folks than that, and good thing not many are stupid to agree with your assessment of Powell.
I see that you are ignorant of the history of it all and Powell's eventually leaving of Bush admin, but that is understandable, given the ignorance of the right.
