It's not to late to jump onto the Democratic Ship, the Republican Boat hasn't completely sank yet!

And that is exactly what Scott McClellan did. For those of you who don't know who Scott McClellan is and what he is doing. Consider this blog post a small overview of him and what he is doing.

Scott McClellan was a former White House Press Secretary from 2003-2006. He was a good old friend of George W. Bush and as the New York Times called him part of Bush's "Inner Circle."

So what did he do?

McClellan wrote a book about his life and his views on the White House. The book titled, What Happened, tells the truth about what happened in the White House when McClellan worked there.

A New York Times Article, states "In excerpts from the book, set to be published next week, Mr. McClellan writes that President Bush “convinces himself to believe what suits his needs at the moment,” and has engaged in “self-deception” to justify his political ends. He calls the decision to invade Iraq a “serious strategic blunder,” and says that the biggest mistake the Bush White House made was “a decision to turn away from candor and honesty when those qualities were most needed.” "

Many of the people that worked with McClellan are shocked that he would write this.

Dana Perino, the current White House Press Secretary said this about McClellan, "[The] Scott, we now know, is disgruntled about his experience at the White House.For those of us who fully supported him, before, during and after he was press secretary, we are puzzled. It is sad. This is not the Scott we knew."

Karl Rove said, "First of all, this doesn’t sound like Scott. It really doesn’t.Not the Scott McClellan I’ve known for a long time. Second of all, it sounds like somebody else. It sounds like a left-wing blogger." (I guess he is talking about me)

Anyway, it is just very interesting to see that many people in this election are jumping ship and becoming Democrats abandoning the Republican Ship.

I like this guy, but honestly sounds like white house "welcome to the real life". It is very brave from himself to share this public. I guess if someone from Bush "circle" is so strong about the wrong decisions he has made Democrats are not so wrong about him in the end. Im gonna check out his book. ^-^
