Colin Powell, the former secretary of state under President George W. Bush, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and four-star general, made his 2012 endorsement this morning. He's supporting Barack Obama once again.

"I signed on for a long patrol with President Obama, and I don't think this is the time to make such a sudden change," he told CBS This Morning earlier today. "Not only am I not comfortable with what Governor Romney is proposing for his economic plan, I have concerns about his views on foreign policy. The governor, who was speaking Monday night at the debate, was saying things that were quite different from what he said earlier. So I'm not quite sure which Gov. Romney we would be getting with respect to foreign policy. … It's a moving target."
