Over the weekend, former Vice President Dick Cheney made public his views on Colin Powell's place in the Republican Party. In Cheney's words: "My take on it was Colin had already left the party. I didn't know he was still a Republican." The former VP followed up with this explanation: "He endorsed the Democratic candidate for president this time, Barack Obama... I assumed that that is some indication of his loyalty and his interest." Is Cheney right about Powell? If so, would Powell have a place in the Democratic Party? Post your thoughts.
