Misguided loyalty

Powell Suggests He Would Never Resign on Policy

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Secretary of State Colin Powell, talking on Wednesday about his 1940s predecessor George Marshall, suggested he would never resign on policy, however much he might disagree with President Bush.

Powell said in the interview: "I think any good subordinate accommodates himself to the wishes of his superior and, in effect, you determine how best to serve that individual."

Too bad Powell sees himself as serving a misguided individual instead of serving his country. Powell's resignation could be a powerful statement.
