Powell endorses Obama

Gen. Colin Powell endorsed presidential candidate Barack Obama on Sunday according to the Denver Post.

Powell also stressed the nation's need for a "transformative figure."

Both were reasons for him endorsing Obama.

The New York Times reported Powell announced Obama had gained an immense financial edge over Sen. John McCain.

“He is a new generation coming into the world, onto the world stage,? Powell said.
