(CNN) - Retired Gen. Colin Powell is not prepared to back President Barack Obama in the 2012 presidential campaign.
The former secretary of state under former President George W. Bush endorsed then-candidate Obama in the 2008 election, but said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union" that he will wait to make a decision on whom to support in the next presidential election.
"I'm not committed to Barack Obama. I'm not committed to a Republican candidate," Powell told CNN Chief Political Correspondent Candy Crowley. "I am not committed to any candidate until I see all the candidates and finally see who the two candidates are who are going for this position."
"Right now I do not see on the Republican side any one individual who I think is going to emerge at the top of the pile," Powell added.
