Today on Holden’s Obsession with the Gaggle

From Holden:

So many bloggers have done such a good job on today’s gaggle (here, here, here, and here) that there’s not much left for me to say.

However, I don’t recall anyone making much of this exchange:

Q Yes, in your dealings with the special counsel, have you consulted a personal attorney?

MR. McCLELLAN: Again, I’m just not going to say anything further. I expressed all I’m going to say on this matter from this podium.

That one hit pretty close to home, didn’t it Scottie?

We already know that both Bush and Cheney have lawyered-up, I wonder if either man perjured himself while testifying last summer.

And now, your Daily Les:

Q Scott, since President William Howard Taft became Chief Justice after his presidency, you would not rule out the President nominating former law school professor Bill Clinton to the Supreme Court, would you? And if you wouldn’t, we can report that President Clinton is under consideration, can’t we?

MR. McCLELLAN: Well, that’s the first time I’ve heard that name suggested. I know there are a lot of names being suggested out there, and you know that I’m not going to get into speculating about any particular names.

Q One follow-up. Considering the widespread interest and the absolutely frantic Democrat reaction to Karl Rove’s excellent speech to conservatives last month, does the President hope that Karl will give a lot more speeches?

MR. McCLELLAN: He continues to give speeches. He was traveling this weekend talking about the importance of strengthening Social Security. And he has continued to go out and give speeches.
