Barry Artiste, Now Public Contributor
Scott McClellan certainly hit the mother lode as confident to the President, a Holy Grail position which now that his explosive book which came out with a Dirty Laundry list of Tell Alls of President Bush. These revelations will assure him unlimited scorn from politicians of all stripes, and assuredly a Thumbs Up from Oprah's Book Club, which will make him millions....No..billions of Fans the world over.
Perhaps Scott is telling Bush pick your associated closely, as Bush may not rethink his Friends list in his Blackberry, and reorganize his 5 friends list on his presidential phone.
Scott will most likely be fielding countless lucrative calls from talk shows. One wonders if there was a confidential disclosure agreement between Scott and the President, if not, then there should have been, and Georges fault.
Certainly this book will be a best seller in the Middle East and other countries where the Bush Administration stepped on my many toes during his time in office. As for Scott, I am sure he will now have new best friends, and lose many friends who will not trust someone who was a confidante to a President.

Former press secretary says Dubya deceived people-
In a shocking turnabout, the press secretary most known for defending President George W. Bush has written a memoir damning his old boss on nearly every level -- from a less-than-honest selling of the Iraq war to a lack of personal candour.
In the first major insider account of the Bush White House, Scott McClellan calls the operation "insular, secretive and combative" and says it veered irretrievably off course as a result.
The White House responded angrily yesterday to McClellan's confessional memoir, calling it self-serving sour grapes.
"Scott, we now know, is disgruntled about his experience at the White House," said White House press secretary Dana Perino, a former deputy to McClellan. "We are puzzled. It is sad. This is not the Scott we knew."
McClellan was the White House press secretary from May 2003 to April 2006, the second of four so far in Bush's presidency. He discloses that he was pushed to leave earlier than he had planned.
