I don’t think this is the equivalent of Colin Powell’s endorsement of Obama, but it’s certainly interesting:

He will work with people of good will no matter what their party, and he will pursue the policies that are in the best interest of our country, no matter who proposes them. That’s what President Obama promised to do four years ago. But like so many of his promises, bipartisan cooperation is just another one he has broken.
