Open Thread

For general discussion and debate. Possible talking point: another Bush tell-all:

Former White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan writes in a surprisingly scathing memoir to be published next week that President Bush “veered terribly off course,” was not “open and forthright on Iraq,” and took a “permanent campaign approach” to governing at the expense of candor and competence.

Is this just another former White House official willing to do and say anything to sell books and further his career, or do you think McClellan's telling the truth? What is it about this Administration that has produced so many of these tell-alls? Is it the Administration's fault, or all the money now available from publishers for such things?
