Colin Powell: Actions Belittling to the Office to which They Are Striving

Colin Powell, once a rising star in the Republican party until George W. Bush sent him to the United Nations to plead the lie about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, has even come out saying the Republicans are acting inappropriately. He also served as Ronald Reagan's national security adviser.

Referring to the "civility" and "lack of any nastiness" he saw in Ronald Reagan, Mr. Powell decried the tone of the current Republican presidential campaign. "To stand there and do junior high school tricks on one another is belittling the country and belittling the office to which they are striving," he said.

Here in the death struggle of hierarchies, the ground is shaking and unfamiliar to those at the top, and we can predict we will continue to see efforts to stabilize back to life as it used to be.
