CNN.com - White House to Kerry: Names names - Mar 15, 2004: "Kerry campaign spokeswoman Stephanie Cutter shot back that if McClellan was going to take on campaign issues, Bush 'ought to get him off the taxpayers' payroll and stop using the White House for political purposes.'
'The bottom line is this White House would be better off spending its time repairing our alliances around the world so we can collectively fight the war on terrorism and better protect the United States, rather than using the White House press room as a place to carry out political attacks,' she said in a written statement."
This somewhat angry-sounding retort is actually well-taken. When did it become Mr. McClellan's job to make campaign statements or challenge the president's political opponents?
