Why he left...



A November 8, 2002 file photo shows U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell (news - web sites) looking at U.S. President George W. Bush (news - web sites) at the Rose Garden of the White House. Powell, widely respected in a world often wary of America's superpower diplomacy, resigned November 15, 2004. Powell, who was viewed as a voice of moderation in an administration dominated by right-wing hawks, is the top administration official to quit since President George W. Bush's re-election. He was one of four Cabinet members whose resignations were announced on Monday by the White House in a typical transition ahead of a new presidential term. The others were Energy Secretary Spencer Abraham (news - web sites), Agriculture Secretary Ann Veneman and Education Secretary Rod Paige. Last week Attorney General John Ashcroft (news - web sites) and Commerce Secretary Donald Evans quit.
