Keith Olbermann asked Scott McClellan if he would be cautious over White House talk about Iran.

MCCLELLAN: They are still in this permanent campaign mode. They haven’t backed away from that. I can’t speak specifically to what the intent is in some of the people’s heads there. I think that our options are certainly limited with all of our commitments right now, but I hope that when people look and read this book, that they will learn some of the lessons from Iraq and that we won’t make some of the mistakes that we’ve made elsewhere.

OLBERMANN: So knowing what you know, if Dana Perino starts making noises similar to what you heard from Ari Fleischer in 2002 and other members of the cabinet, you would be suspicious?

MCCLELLAN: I would be. I would be. I think that you would need to take the comments seriously and be skeptical.
