Colin Luther Powell was often mentional as a potential presidential candidate, and many hoped he would run for president as a possible opponent of Bill Clinton in the 1996 U.S. presidential election, but Powell had declined due to a lack of passion for politics in 1995. He was an American statesmen and retired as a four-star general in the U.S. Army. He was also the 65th Unites States Secretary of State under U.S. President George W. Bush from 2001 to 2005. He was the first African American to serve in that position.
