Colin Powell Releases a Vintage Selfie On Facebook (PHOTO)

Man listen. Former Secretary of State Colin Powell unloaded the mother of all selfies via Facebook on Thursday.
Powell was referring to Ellen DeGeneres’s now-famous selfie with several major stars at the Academy Awards earlier this month. It became the most retweeted photo ever on Twitter — surpassing the previous record-holders, President and Mrs. Obama and their campaign photo.
I have to give it to Colin Powell. He was spot-on with the release of the photo and it plays perfectly in the social media age. I think it was a great way to show a more personal side of him. You cannot argue with a man who literally took that picture 60 years ago. I can say that Mr. Powell, who turns 77 next month, has aged very well.
