Powell: 'I am still a Republican'
Calling for his divided party to widen its ranks, Powell declared, "I am still a Republican."
In an appearance on CBS' Face the Nation, Powell responded to attacks from former Vice President Dick Cheney and talk show host Rush Limbaugh, saying they are "not members of the membership committee of the Republican Party."

Secretary Powell is correct. As long as Cheney and Limbaugh a spokesmen of the party, it will dwindle down to only those who supported failure. I do not hear anyone in the party trying to come up with a way to attract more people from the middle; perhaps because those who speak for it, see anyone even a little left toward the middle as liberals.

Well, Powell may still be a Republican, but only in his own mind. McCain, too.
What they are trying to do is restore the Rockefeller view--the old eastern liberal establishment sent packing by Goldwater in 1964--to leadership in the Republican Party.
If the McCain/Powell/Rove/Reed cabal now traipsing the country gets its way--and the MSM devoutly hopes they will--there will be two liberal and no conservative party in the country.
