Bush's Press Secretary Is Voting Obama-Biden

October 23, 2008 · Leave a Comment

Given his scathing book about the Bush administration he once served and the brokenness of Washington politics, I suppose it’s not a huge surprise that Scott McClellan, former Press Secretary for President Bush, is voting for Obama-Biden.

Still, McClellan’s formal announcement earlier today on the new “T.L. Hughley Breaks The News” comedy show on CNN, is still striking in that moderate Republicans seem to be breaking more strongly away from McCain-Palin.

I have to believe that it’s for many of the same reasons that Colin Powell endorsed Obama:

  • Obama is a transformative historic figure
  • McCain’s campaign has been unsteady
  • McCain has cozied up to the right wing of the Republican party
  • Palin highlights the extent to which McCain has bought into the “win-at-all-costs” mentality
  • Palin’s selection demonstrates how much beholden the Republican party is to the religious right.
