Ex-Bush press secretary McClellan endorses Barack Obama


latimesblogs.latimes.com

Scott McClellan, President Bush's former press secretary, announced Thursday that he is endorsing Barack Obama for president.

McClellan is the second former Bush administration official this week to come out in support of the Democratic presidential candidate. Former Secretary of State Colin L. Powell announced his endorsement last weekend.

McClellan's news, which he shared during a taping of comedian D.L. Hughley's new show on CNN, doesn't come as a huge surprise.

"From the very beginning I have said I am going to support the candidate that has the best chance for changing the way Washington works and getting things done and I will be voting for Barack Obama."


A bit of levity in these very serious times.

While this certainly doesn't come as much of a surprise, it is noteworthy. Another prominent Republican has endorsed Sen. Obama for President.


McClellan's open criticism of Bush and other Republicans has not gone down well with his former colleagues, who have publicly described him as disgruntled and out of the loop from major White House decisions.

Bipartisanship -- or lack of party loyalty, depending on your view -- is not new for McClellan. His mother, Texas politico Carole Keeton Strayhorn, was a Democrat until the 1980s, when she switched to the GOP. Strayhorn later ran as an independent against Republican Gov. Rick Perry.

Noone wants to call the guy a traitor, even? Must've spewed all their venom in a Powell thread.

Perhaps I should start a thread saying
