Perhaps That's the Problem  

"Now he is a political candidate and I'm secretary of state, and I don't do politics." Colin Powell doesn't do politics. Perhaps this is why the US is now totally alienated from other like-minded countries around the world. Our own Sec. of State doesn't understand his own job. If Powell doesn't do politics, why is he at State in the first place? This is perhaps Powell's most obtuse statement yet. The entire purpose of his office is political. When he goes abroad he meets foreign leaders; who are politicians. When he meets at the UN with the Security Council, he meets with politicians engaged in political negotiations over how to deal with the world's problems. Why does America's chief liason to the world think he doesn't do politics? Does anyone in this administration know what he's doing?
