      • Scott McClellan: You kind of lose perspective sometimes when you get caught up in the Washington game where it's all about who can shape the narrative to their advantage for the next election instead of doing what's best for the country. And that's what I talk about in this book is how we can move beyond this permanent campaign mentality and get people focused again on what they came here for in the first place which was to make a positive difference and get things done on behalf of the people.

      • Stephen: Tonight: The Democratic National Convention kicks off in Denver. Big news for its sister cities Sodom and Gomorrah. Plus the Democratic Convention has gone green. Don't worry, the Republican Convention is still going to be all white. And my guest is former White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan. It'll be a great interview if he just sticks to the talking points I gave him. To the Democrats in the Mile High City, remember if you drink liquor at that altitude, you might become interesting. This is the Colbert Report.
