“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
Scott McClellan is the infamous former White House press secretary who sharply criticized President Bush in his memoir “What Happened” this past spring.
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. This past Sunday former Secretary of State to Bush Colin Powell also endorsed Obama.
The interview will broadcast on Hughley’s new show – D.L. Hughley Breaks the News – this Saturday at 10 p.m. ET on CNN.
Wow, what a ‘get’ for Hughley – CONGRATS D.L.!
