McClellan Out

Well, the White House exodus continues. Scott McClellan, the second Bush press secretary, announced his resignation this morning. Among possible replacement candidates, Fox reports, are Tony Snow, former Pentagon spokeswoman Torie Clark, and former Iraq provisional authority spokesman Dan Senor.

Hotline adds "New WH CoS Josh Bolton has asked DCoS Karl Rove to give up his policy planning portfolio. Rove will retain the title of deputy chief of staff and continue to serve as the president's chief political and strategic adviser. Joel Kaplan, Bolton's OMB deputy, will replace rove as Pres. Bush's policy coordinator."

Keep it up, Bolten.

Do you think that this shift, outing of Scott and Karl's change of roles will really affect anything?

It appears to be a painful version of 'meet the new boss, same as the old boss'...
