Spotlight is on McClellan

Too bad Halloween has already passed…I should have asked which costume you would have preferred:


  • Scott McClellan now or…
  • Mike McCurry during the Lewinsky scandal…

Tough call, yeah?

A few recent articles have focused on some of McClellan’s troubles and trip-ups, most notably with regard to the delicate line he’s trying (unsuccessfully) to walk on Plame-gate (i.e. How to maintain credibility with a White House press corps that, by most estimates, he–knowingly or not–misled when he told them that Karl Rove and Scooter Libby were not involved in the leak?)

  • Dan Froomkin’s White House Briefing (here and here).
  • Dana Milbank discusses trust in the press room.
  • Richard Stevenson for the NYTimes.
