I guess classless John Sununu wanted some of that racialized publicity for himself that Sarah Palin had monopolized the last few days.
Sununu, former Gov. of New Hampshire, decided that former Defense Secretary Colin Powell - - a Republican - - endorsed President Obama because Obama and Powell are African-American. Remember that Powell endorsed Obama in 2008, too.
Said Sununu, a Romney surrogate and the campaign's co-chair:
"I think when you have somebody of your own race that you're proud of being president of the United States, I applaud Colin for standing with him."
