Colin Powell is endorsing President Barack Obama in the election. Â He announced his decision Thursday on "CBS This Morning."
The former U.S. secretary of state, who served under President George W. Bush, made news four years ago when he pledged his support for Obama. Â Powell recently spoke with CNN's Fareed Zakaria about President Obama's foreign policy record.
Former Secretary of State Colin Powell said Monday that he hasÂ "no interest" in government service in response to a recently televisedÂ suggestion by Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell that President Barack Obama nameÂ Powell as White House chief of staff.
"I haven't been asked and I don't expect to be asked," Powell told CNN'sÂ "Larry King Live" in an interview set to air Monday night. " ... I don't expectÂ to be asked because I've had 40 years of government service ... I have noÂ interest in government service."
Instead, the retired Army general suggested Rendell would be a betterÂ pick.
