Former Secretary of State Colin Powell, appearing on MSNBC's Morning Joe yesterday, questioned Mitt Romney's choice in foreign policy advisers. "I don't know who all of his advisers are, but I've seen some of the names, and some of them are quite far to the right. And sometimes they might be in a position to make judgments or recommendations to the candidate that should get a second thought," he said.

His response to Romney's recent statement that Russia is the "number one geopolitical foe" to the United States? "Come on Mitt, think. That isn't the case."

Powell, who endorsed President Obama in 2008, hasn't yet indicated which candidate he'll support this time around.
