Olbermann Declares McClellan Book a 'Primary Document in American History'
Edward Gibbon’s “Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire.” Winston Churchill’s “Second World War.” “What Happened” by Scott McClellan. One of these things is not like the other.
Unless you’re Keith Olbermann, who prophesied yesterday on his show that the former Bush press secretary’s tell-all book would end up being a textbook in college history courses some day.
McClellan was busy making the media rounds yesterday. He first appeared on "The Today Show" and then it was on to the nightly news shows, ABC's "World News" and CBS's "Evening News." His last interview of the day was on "Countdown with Keith Olbermann." In his last remarks to McClellan, Olbermann continued his flare for hyperbole. Here's what he said:
OLBERMANN: Scott McClellan, I don't want to get too fulsome on you but I don't think you're going to be dining out on the book for the rest of life. I think this a primary document of American history and I'm very impressed with it. At some point people will be teaching history based on it.
