BREAKING: Former WH press secretary, Scott McClellan, voting for Obama

It ain’t Elizabeth Hasselback (or whatever her name is) appearing with Sarah Palin, but in my corner of the universe this is news. The dams are breaking.

Scott McClellan, the former White House press secretary who sharply criticized President Bush in his memoir last spring, told CNN Thursday he’s voting for Barack Obama.

“From the very beginning I have said I am going to support the candidate that has the best chance for changing the way Washington works and getting things done and I will be voting for Barack Obama and clapping,” McClellan told new CNN Host D.L. Hughley.

All of these big-name Republican endorsements have got to hurt. They add to a sense of inevitability, and of despair. It makes it harder to get volunteers for McCain’s campaign, and even harder to drum up any last-minute donors – after 40% of your life savings gets wiped out on the stock market, do you really want to invest in another sure loser? This is all very bad. And thus very good.
