Posted on 10/24/2008 5:06:28 AM PDT by meandog
The former press secretary to George Bush has announced he is backing Barack Obama in the race to replace his ex-boss as US president.
Scott McClellan said on Thursday that he had decided to back the Democrat because he wanted to support the candidate with the best chance of changing the way Washington - the political heart of the US - works and gets things done.
His announcement is yet another blow to the campaign of John McCain, the Republican contender, who is struggling to erode Obama's opinion poll lead.
McClellan is the second former Bush administration figure this week to publicly support Obama after Colin Powell, the former US secretary of state under Bush, threw his weight behind the Illinois senator.
McClellan disclosed his decision during the recording of a television show to be shown on CNN, the US broadcaster, this weekend.
Who cares !
Enjoy it while it lasts, Scott.
Obama can have him. He’s always been a democrat.
The Bush administration, the gift that keeps on giving.
The only vote that affects is McClellan’s. There are many Democrats who will vote for McCain but they can’t say it in public without being pilloried by the Party and the MSM. McClellan had his two days of fame a couple months ago when he stabbed Bush in the back. Now he’s back for another 5 minutes. I echo your sentiment: WHO CARES!!
If Obama wins, I hope Scott becomes his press secty.
Proof I guess that some Republicans are secretly Marxists at heart.
like we’re surprised...
No good SOB.
That’s worse than a regular SOB.
Um.....with the complete hatred of Bush on the left, I am struggling to see how FORMER BUSH ADMINISTRATION OFFICIALS endorsing Obama is a good thing. I mean, they used to work for the most evil man to ever be born!
McClellan is a douchebag.
The only reason why this is even newsworthy is because it gives the press yet another excuse to poke McCain in the eye saying, ‘oh, lookie - another Republican voting for Obama!’
Otherwise, no on would care what McClellan thinks.
gee..I wonder..if in the privacy of the voting booth..does mcclellan vote with a deer in the headlight look??
You took the words right out of my mouth! LOL
