It shouldn't come as a surprise that a comedian broke news this afternoon in the presidential race.
With Jon Stewart, Tina Fey, and Stephen Colbert as much a part of the mix as anyone else, comedian D.L. Hughley got a scoop in a snippet of his new show on CNN, called aptly "D.L. Hughley Breaks the News."
"You haven't endorsed anybody," Hughley cajoled former White House press secretary Scott McClellan. "There is McCain and there is Obama. You know, Iím a new show, and your endorsement probably would mean a lot. Don't look at the fact that I'm black. Nothing like - no pressure. Endorse somebody, Damn it. Endorse somebody."
McClellan, who wrote a book bashing his former bosses in the Bush administration, replied, "From the very beginning I've said I'm going to support the candidate who has the best chance of changing the way Washington works and getting things done. I will be voting for Barack Obama."
