Watch McCllellan on D.L. Hughley Breaks the News.
(CNN) - Scott McClellan, the former White House press secretary who sharply criticized President Bush in his memoir last spring, told CNN Thursday he's voting for Barack Obama.
"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 and clapping," McClellan told new CNN Host D.L. Hughley
McClellan, a onetime Bush loyalist whose scathing critique of the president sent shock waves across Washington last spring, has long hinted he was leaning toward the Illinois senator.
"It's a message that is very similar to the one that Gov. Bush ran on in 2000," McClellan said in May about Obama's campaign.
McClellan isn't the first member of Bush's inner circle to express support for Obama. In 2007, former Bush strategist Matt Dowd also said he had become disillusioned with the president and said Obama was the only candidate that appealed to him.
The full interview will air on D.L. Hugley's new show, D.L. Hughley Breaks the News, Saturday at 10 p.m. ET. Hughley is also a guest of Larry King Live Friday at 9 p.m. ET.
keep this up and Bush might be voting for Obama
This election is going to be a landslide with all these life long Republicans voting for Obama.
WE ARE NOT BUSH AIDS BUT WE WILL VOTE FOR THE MAN
THAT PROMOTES AMERICAN UNITY, AMERICAN PROGRESS,
AMERICAN ECONOMIC SUPERIORITY, NOT STUPIDITY & POVERTY.
To quote a line that the very sexy Obama Girl said: "Can's You See It's Hopeless.... It's become an Obama Nation!!!" The More Republicans that join us the stronger we are!!!
Powell, Buckley, Dowd, McClellan, Parker, the list goes on and on. What does it say about McCain the many in the GOP think O is the better candidate.
OMG–always thought this guy was smart. good for him .
He knows time is running out, and that there is no country for 'OLD MEN".
even mc same will
McClellan you better tell Obama that you love him, and then you write another book telling us that Obama is an idiot. that will be the best way we will believe in you.Because Obama is an Idiot.
McCain /Palin 008.
George W is probably next.
Do whats right for America? If Obama is elected President, America will be run by a man who has ties with radicals and terrorists.
If you think the economy is bad now, wait to you see what happens if Obama is elected President. Down, Down, Down............
The Market is already pricing a significant downturn on November 5th if Obama is elected.
Get informed people, this is serious.
McCain Save us.
Reports from this searing-hot eternal waystation indicate that a severe frost has taken hold of the entirety of the Underworld, causing flames to be extinguished, icicles to form and snow up to 2 feet in various parts of this once-scorching wasteland.
Longtime political watchers have said that this unique wintry phenomenon, often cited as a precursor to impossible developments, explains why Sen. Barack Obama has been supported by people like Scott McClellan, Charles Krauthammer, Michael Smerconish, Matthew Dowd, Arne Carlson and Fred Hiatt.
One almost has to think that McCain v.2000 may have endorsed and voted for Obama over Bush Jr.
Thank you Scott,,,you are on the winning team!!!!
Yes We Can!
I am sorry...I hope as many people as possible vote for Obama, but I hate the thought I am voting the same way as McClellan.
Thanks Scott!! LOL!! I knew you'd do it.
I think it was just a matter of time before the smart ones started coming over!!!!!!!!
McCain/Palin placards just went up in my neighbors' yard on Monday. They're the scariest Halloween decorations I've ever seen...
Some Rethuglicans can actually recognized a madien voyage of the Titanic when they see them. I am not actually glad to see McClellan but, welcome aboard.
Wow, Republicans are jumping ship left and right. (And, who can blame them?)
Nadeem...if she taking advantage as a candidate how will she take advantage of taxpayers as VP. She'll do to us as she did to Alaska and will be paying for Bristol's wedding.
Keep the good news coming. Maybe eventually Bush will realize what a dolt he has been for 8 years.
Let the Obama era begin!
Even the blowhard Limbaugh realizes Obama is sure to win, and ole Dittohead Rush is already talking about starting to re-build the conservative, right wing wacko base
I mean't WE'LL be paying
what $4, 000 for a purse?????? What will happen when she is in the White house?????? I believe she will loose and lose the governor's place!!!!!! What a choice McShame????
