McClellan & Family

The other night, I was watching a NBC Nightly News story critical of the complexities of the new Medicare plan, which is so ridiculously confusing. Part of the story involved a soundbite-sized interview with the Medicare chief Dr Mark McClellan. Last name ring a bell? It should - his brother Scott is the President's press secretary. My first instincts were favoritism at play, although reading the comments of both Republican and Democratic senators about the nomination (last year) suggests he was an excellent choice. Incidentally, their mom is the Texas comptroller, and considered to be a potential gubernatorial candidate!
