Tom DeFrank:

Pay absolutely no attention to yet another round of dope stories today that John McCain is mulling Colin Powell as a running mate. They’re absolutely bogus – leaks from the McCain camp to get the political and media chatteratti to change the subject for a few hours.

Powell is NOT going to be on the McCain ticket, and McCain knows it himself. So do his advisers.

When the Arizona senator called on the retired general and national icon to solicit his endorsement a few weeks back, the Veepship came up, and Powell said that was a total non-starter. “Colin was absolutely unambiguous,” a source privy to the conversation told The Mouth. “It will never happen, and John and his people know it.”

This makes you hope the Obama endorsement stories are true. 😉
