Powell Open to Post

WASHINGTON () -- Retired General Colin Powell would consider accepting a position in the administration of President Bill Clinton, he said in a published interview.

"You always have to listen to your president," Powell told the Orlando Sentinel on Saturday. "I would consider it, but I can say that no one has contacted me."

Clinton said Friday he is considering appointing Republicans to his cabinet. Powell, who is hugely popular in the United States, could be considered for either secretary of state or defense.
