McClellan Dregs: This Explains Everything

How could a guy known by all his colleagues too be a pro-Bush, pro-war on terror stand-up guy suddenly turn into ... well ... a Scott McClellan? That question has mystified his former colleagues, as WaPo captures well today:
Trent Duffy, who worked as McClellan's deputy for more than two years, said of the avid University of Texas sports fan: 'Tomorrow maybe we're going to learn he's rooting for the Oklahoma Sooners.'
Finally, there's an answer, provided by McClellan himself in an interview with USA Today:
"I have a lot of respect and admiration for Sen. McCain," former White House press secretary Scott McClellan said in a telephone interview with USA TODAY's David Jackson this afternoon.

"I'm also intrigued by Sen. Obama," McClellan added.
Assuming "intrigued" means "considering voting for," then we know why McClellan sold out his former boss: He was either posing the whole time he was in the White House, or he's gone stark raving mad.

So, again, the other question: Why would anyone care what this guy has to say?
