Former Secretary of State Colin Powell, who endorsed Barack Obama in the 2008 presidential election, told The Daily Caller that he will be “listening” to both GOP presidential front-runner Mitt Romney and President Obama before making any “judgments” on their foreign policies.

“I’m not going to do politics tonight, and I will be watching both Mr. Romney and President Obama and see what judgments I come to as a result of listening to them, but that’s not tonight,” he told TheDC at the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner. “Tonight is entertainment and fun.” (RELATED: Full coverage of the 2012 election)

In September 2010 Powell said he thought President Obama was a “transformational figure,” but stopped short of endorsing him for re-election.

Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich told TheDC at the dinner that he will be dropping out of the Republican race “about Wednesday.” (RELATED: Newt Gingrich says he’s dropping out ‘about’ May 2 and endorsing Romney [VIDEO])

Texas Rep. Ron Paul has not said if he plans to end or suspend his campaign and get behind Romney.
