As Obama's Lead Slips, Powell Endorses Obama

The obligatory Colin Powell endorses Barack Obama post....actually from listening to Powell over the last months, I seriously thought he already had and just hadn't made it official, so while it isn't a surprise by any stretch of the imagination, the left is acting all surprised.

Actually makes me giggle.

Meat and potatoes of this post though is that over the last week, Barack Obama's lead has shrunk to within the margin of error according to Zogby and even Gallup shows that among likely voters there is a 2 point difference with Obama 2 points ahead of McCain.

Will Powell's endorsement give Obama a boost to stop the tightening in the polls or will we see the polls tighten even more as they have been over the last couple weeks?
