“He may well give a speech at the Democratic convention explaining his endorsement of Obama,” Kristol said, citing inside sources. “For whatever reason I think he has decided he’s going to endorse Obama. I think [Powell] has a high respect for Senator McCain, they go back a long way.” Kristol continued, “This is not an absolute done deal, but these people are very confident that Powell will endorse Obama.”
> Update: Powell tells ABC News: “I do not have time to waste on Bill Kristol’s musings. I am not going to the convention. I have made this clear.” But Powell did not take any follow-up questions about whether he would endorse Obama.
