Powell: 'No interest' in more government service

Former Secretary of State Colin Powell said Monday that he has "no interest" in government service in response to a recently televised suggestion by Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell that President Barack Obama name Powell as White House chief of staff.

"I haven't been asked and I don't expect to be asked," Powell told CNN's "Larry King Live" in an interview set to air Monday night. " ... I don't expect to be asked because I've had 40 years of government service ... I have no interest in government service."

Instead, the retired Army general suggested Rendell would be a better pick.

    I see it is still okay to post the offensive term-chocolate president. While it is not okay to call the heathen who posted it a total neanderthal. Nevertheless, I polled many atty's re: the issue. Their problem-either the staff smokes too much pot too, or they don't care who they offend provided it is not a Neanderthal. They are plenty OFFENDED already.

    Well- lawyers do, so, find the term Chocolate President offensive. And, it shouldda been quickly deleted or allowed equal time. God knows you all, at the staff, get into lines at the porta-potty lines at Sarah Palin rallys to Give it to her. Eventually, this pothead will informthe world as to your agenda. It is too slanted, too unfair and ,furthermore, it is total lazy, shabby journalism of the absolute worst type. Only Rupert Murdoch will respect it when I am done contacting EVERY atty I know. I am beginning w/ the Chocolate ones.
