Party ID came up because Aspen Institute head Walter Isaacson pointed to not just Powell's support of Obama, but his recent expressed support for the Iran deal and several other stances that are more commonly held by Democrats.'Yes, I'm still a Republican,' said Powell, who most recently served as President George W.
