As noted at CBS that morning, Colin Powell was the guest on the show and later sang the chorus of Carly Rae Jepsen‘s hit song, ‘Call Me Maybe‘ with the show co-host Gayle King as fellow host Charlie Rose watches on.
“Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy. But here’s my number, so call me maybe.” Colin Powell sings, who added some dance moves while singing along with Gayle, and later stood up from his chair and told Rose, “Charlie, it was a lock, it was a lock.”
“I didn’t stop it,” Rose replied, but Powell, who famously backed US President Barack Obama during the 2008 presidential election, insisted jokingly, “You ran the clock out, we were going to talk about politics” and he exited the stage and the three of them laughed.
But on the serious moment, Powell said that he has not decided as to whether he will vote for Mitt Romney or President Obama this coming November election, adding that he may not even publicly announce his personal choice this time.
“I haven’t seen everything that Mitt Romney is going to do. I don’t feel any obligation to make an endorsement because I am on a book tour,” Powell added, referring to his new book titled “It Worked for Me: In Life and Leadership“, which he is now promoting.
