What they both said was how great Foley looked, and he was particularly excited about Colin Powell’s endorsement that morning of Obama. Foley said he also favors Obama.
I agree with James Joyner at OTB who writes– “Let’s just say I don’t believe Team Obama will be touting this one as loudly as the Powell endorsement.” Who’s next to come out for Obama? Senator Larry Craig?
Disclosure- While never meeting Congressman Foley, my wife Leonita and I met his parents. They were parishoners at the church we attend, where Leonita also works and got to know the Foleys who were Eucharistic Ministers like herself.
