Scott McClellan, the calm voice of an embattled White House throughout the most tumultuous times of the Bush administration, announced today that he will step down as press secretary to President Bush.Or is he just freeing up some time to work on those plea bargain deals.
The departure of McClellan, a Texan who has served as a loyal spokesman for Bush in various capacities since the president's days as governor of Texas in the late 1990s, signals a high-profile effort by the Bush administration to reshape the public message that is coming from a presidency struggling with daunting public disapproval. At the same time, the president's chief political adviser, Karl Rove, will be shedding his duties as a policy adviser in the White House -- a role that Rove assumed after serving as "the architect'' of Bush's reelection in 2004, when Rove became deputy chief of staff.
