Rare Prescriptive Observation

Ok. I would guess many of you read this blog because you're good at the rules of English but you're tired of the sites that just whine about poor apostrophe usage and misspelling.
And that's why I write this. Because while there are "rules", language for me is about communicating and, when possible, having fun.

But when I heard Colin Powell this morning I almost missed the communication because of what I find to be an odd construction:
"I voted for him in 2008 and I plan to stick with him in 2012 and I'll be voting for he and for Vice President Joe Biden next month."

Did this catch anyone else's ear?
