Scotty Skates

McClellan resigns:
WASHINGTON — White House Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove gave up some of his responsibilities and White House press secretary Scott McClellan announced his resignation Wednesday, continuing a shake-up in President Bush's administration that has already yielded a new chief of staff.
I'm not sure if I really like the word 'shake-up', a simple restructuring is what is going on. The President has been surrounded by the same people for quite some time, if anyone needs to have new voices and clear heads surrounding him, it is this President. Who's next to acquire the flack jacket:
McClellan is expected to remain in his job until a successor is named. Among those under consideration are Tony Snow, a former White House speechwriter under the first President Bush, former Pentagon spokeswoman Victoria Clarke and Dan Senor, a former coalition spokesman after the invasion of Iraq, according to Republican officials.
Tony Snow, now that is intriguing. I traded E-Mails with Tony when he announced his health issues just over a year ago. I hope this means he is doing better.

I wish Scott well, he had a tough job.
