Let's cut to the chase. Conservatives, in general, do not like Colin Powell. They very much respect his service to his country but they do not respect his politics.
When (hopefully) Fred Thompson is chosen as the GOP nominee in 2008 conservatives will have won a major victory.
However, two important realities will then happen.
First, conservatives will have little or no influence over the choice of a vice president nominee.
Next, in truth, conservatives will gladly give in to Colin Powell on the ticket for a victory in November 2008. That would be an easy choice and compromise.
Ronald Reagan added George Bush to the ticket and rode to victory crushing Jimmy Carter.
If Fred Thompson adds Colin Powell to the ticket in 2008 another conservative victory party will take place.
