Scott McClellan's tell-all book is making big waves. In the last election for Texas governor, Republican Texas Comptroller Carole Keeton Strayhorn (using the slogan "One Tough Grandma" based on her cost-saving reputation as Comptroller) ran as an independent Republican (al la Liberman) against incumbent Gov. Rick Perry.
Perry was Bush's Lt. Gov. and became Gov. when Bush moved to D.C. Strayhorn started her campaign with a flurry, faded fast, and got trounced in the election, receiving vitually no support from the GOP. McClellan is Strayhorn's son. His book is payback from the family.
