WASHINGTON ? Secretary of State Colin Powell announced his resignation to his staff during their Monday morning meeting, a State Department source told FOX News.

President Bush is expected to make the official announcement. The source suggested that Powell is likely to stay in place until a replacement is confirmed.


This has been expected....

Although we knew it was coming, it still hurts.

Colin Powell was gifted with wisdom, understanding of situations, and integrity. I have read and heard that he was highly regarded around the world. He was a statesman.

IMO, the handwriting was on the wall for quite some time as his advice was ignored. His appearances on TV were few and far between. But, being the soldier that he is, he followed orders, and served his tour.

Paul Wolfowitz has been mentioned as a possible replacement. I certainly hope not!!!

Sad to see him go.

But unless I'm mistaken, there has been indications since he accepted the office he intended to stay one term only.

The differences between him and others of the administration no doubt strenghtened his decision.

Too bad, he's a good man, IMO

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
