speeches and I think he's ar-
ticulate, he is intelligent and he
knows exactly what the prob-
lems facing this nation are."
Gen. Powell, who signed
copies of his book My American
Journey at Barnes & Noble in
West Bloomfield wrapped up
his 19-city book tour two days
after his Detroit-area stop.
With the tour behind him, the
general will soon end public
speculation about his future.
In the coming weeks he will
make a decision on whether to
make a presidential bid.
If he does, will members of the
Jewish community throw their
support behind the former chair-
man of the Joint Chiefs of Staff?
Many Jewish political analysts
believe Jews would support Gen.
Powell because while fiscally con-
servative, on social issues the pro-
choice general is more liberal.
But, they say, he will not auto-

Jewish votes.
"Of all the Republican candi-
dates, Powell's agenda, from
what little we know, has broad-
est appeal to the mainstream
Jewish community," said Dou-
glas Bloomfield, a Washington-
based political analyst. "In that
sense, he would have the great-
est support there." However, ac-
cording to Mr. Bloomfield,
President Clinton's policy and
performance on domestic issues

the Gulf War, said Steven
Mitchell, chairman of Mitchell
Research & Communication Inc.
in East Lansing.
"If they (Jewish voters) feel he
is soft in terms of how he would
react in similar situations as
president, yes, it would hurt
him," Mr. Mitchell said.
As a non-candidate, Gen. Pow-
ell has escaped the harsh, nega-
tive publicity with which
candidates and politicians are so
familiar. While Sen. Bob Dole,
the leading Republican contender
for president, and President Clin-
ton have faced attacks, Gen. Pow-
ell hasn't been through that test.
If Gen. Powell becomes a de-
clared candidate, the Jewish com-
