The full 15 minute interview. I’m watching it now, and I’ll post thoughts when I’m done.
Part 2 (after Dan Bartlett):
I don’t know about you, but this seems like the same Scott McClellan I saw for years behind that podium.
So apparently, two things set him off. First, when he found out that that Rove and Libby lied to him about being involved in the Plame affair and made him look like a fool. Second, when he found out the President secretly declassified that NIE on Iraq so Cheney and Libby could anonymously leak it.
But more importantly than all that, McClellan’s core message in this book seems to be that this hyper-partisanship is Washington must stop because it results in people making really poor decisions and trying to destroy the credibility of the other side if they disagree.
One thing’s for sure, if this guy gets called to testify, he won’t have any problems defending what he wrote.
