Former Press Secretary Scott McClellan’s new memoir, "What Happened: Inside the Bush White House and Washington's Culture of Deception" is scheduled for publication Monday but it’s already causing a stir. Today, the administration laid into McClellan. Current Press Secretary Dana Perino said in a written statement: "Scott, we now know, is disgruntled about his experience at the White House. For those of us who fully supported him, before, during and after he was press secretary, we are puzzled. It is sad - this is not the Scott we knew." That is a common sentiment and one shared by McClellan’s predecessor Ari Fleischer. Fleischer released a statement and will be on 360 tonight.
And there are only three Democratic primaries to go: Puerto Rico votes Sunday, South Dakota and Montana on Tuesday. But there's one other crucial showdown looming. On Saturday, Democratic National Party officials will meet in Washington to decide what to do about the Florida and Michigan delegates. We’ll have the latest on that from the best political team on television.
Don’t forget about the live web camera from the 360° studio. Check out Anderson and Erica behind the scenes on the set. We’ll turn the camera on at 945p ET and turn it off at 11p ET. LINK TO THE BLOG CAMERA
We’ll start posting comments to this blog at 10p ET and stop at 11p ET.
Goodnight Anderson & Erica ~ Lively show!
Good show Anderson and Erica
Have a great day tomorrow everyone
Good night all....talk tomorrow evening.
Have a nice night Erica and Anderson. Goodnight, sleep tight.
Was that the seven year old giving instructions during the escape?
The pic of Warren Jeffs and that young girl kissing is just disgusting. It's obvious that is not a kiss between "a father (father figure) and daughter". That particular photo literally made me retch!
Warren Jeffs looks like a "Chester the Molester" in those pics! ew!
EWWW...Those pictures disturb me so much. I despise Warren Jeffs so much its to sick to describe.
good night all.
That was a great show! looking forward to tomorrow's show.
I think Saturday's meeting and the next 6 months will be a wild show. Popcorn is fine, but something tells me we'll need a gallon of pepto bismul, by the time it's over..Alka seltzer optional
Warren Jeffs is disguating, demented, and gross!
I can't believe that the TX supreme court gave those abused children back. SICK!
Trolley death confirmed. so sad.
The pictures are disgusting! Why has it taken so long to get them public? NOT that I want to see them again!
Good night Anderson, Jana, Renee, and everyone! A fascinating program tonight; see you tomorrow!
Bob L, a Democratic govenor in MI signed the bill that moved the date. This wasn't a Rep. plot.
Those pics of Warren Jeffs are hard to look at. I'm glad he's in jail.
Loved the spirited discussion tonight. Keep it up bloggers! Nite all!
Wow, I didn't think anything could top the horror of Warren Jeffs "singing", that photo of him with that young girl just trumped it.
I have to agree with those pics of Jeffs.....no need to see them.
Erica, you are right, that Jessup passionatly kissing a 13 year old is disgusting. Like watching a child molestor. Please do not continue to play that footage, or at least put up a warning that one will be offended.
Man! That video of the wild fire is terrifying! Wow – glad that they're alright.
Chuck, the Republican congress and governor in Florida also knew about the rules and were warned. The residents of the state should take action against them. They should also speak up during the next election in their state.
Why did these idiots stay in the fire zone to last minute anyway?
I certainly hope New York is the next state to legalize same sex marriage! Recognizing marriages from other states is a good first step.
One of the operator of the Trolley has been reported dead.. she was 25
There are major plans in store in many California cities, relative to the first round of gay marriages. It's a great boost to tourism and there is a lot of press to be had...
The pictures released today of Jeffs in a clinch with what appears to be a child are truly sickening. Could the courts possibly have had the benefit of those images and still have made the decision to return all of the children to the compound?
Wonder how many MORE books are going to come out about the TRUTH in the this administration?
I agree Erica~
McClellen has interesting stuff to tell.
Probably lots of stuff to tell after this administration~
Lynn, Democracy depends on 'one person, one vote'. Any rule that prevents that is a bad rule.
Renee>Wrong. Plame was "fearful" while she was on duty, until she was outed and she had to come home (and resign altogether). We'd all be speaking out once the dust settled enough for us to do so, which is what Plame has done. I can't blame her for taking advantage of every opportunity.
Good night Anderson and all bloggers. Really great show and discussion tonight.
What about McClellan's reference to the president and cocaine use? I understand he overheard a phone conversation.
I look forward to reading it as well. I think truth from one side and total spin from the other.
My take is his allegations are right on the money
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
