True, it's an edge situation. Any chance you have a reference source? "Always form the possessive with an apostrophe, no exceptions" -- Bloom Picayune Style Guide?

tchrist says "only senators, governors, presidents, and officers in the armed forces" keep their titles, while your rule excludes the middle two -- they are "individual" offices -- and adds others, such as judges and ambassadors (and presumably U.S. Representatives). Thanks for the further documentation!

The Powell example is in accordance with the reference that choster gives: "General" is a senior military rank. I'll look for Schorr's description.
