Outstanding Republicans, Colin Powell (Former Secretary of State and chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff), Chris Christie, Governor of New Jersey, The Economist (‘Romney Doesn’t Fit the Bill’), and more newspapers, magazines and individuals who make a difference (James Taylor, etc.), are endorsing President Obama’s candidacy for a second term as President of the United States. I’ve watched Colin Powell for years and he would have been my choice as leader of the Republican Party.
As for Chris Christie, I wrote a blog in praise of him a few months ago. He’s a good, reliable person. I saw him shake hands with President Obama a few days ago. Both were visibly very concerned for United States citizens whose homes were destroyed by Sandy. As we used to say, they seemed “on the save wavelength,” i.e. the people, shattered people.
I heard a speech during which President Obama said (this is a paraphrase) that there was no “Republican” America and no “Democrat” America, but the United States of America.

This link, if it still works, also takes you to good news, not only for the United States, but for the rest of the world.
