Mrs. Buce Notes a Remarkable Instance
Of Generosity on the Part
Of Our Former President

Scott McClellan, George W. Bush's former press secretary, has long since burned his bridges with his old boss, and now the former president returns the favor.  In Bush's  memoir, Decision Points, McClellan does not appear:
...Mr. Bush said Mr. McClellan was irrelevant.

“He was not a part of a major decision. This is a book about decisions. This isn’t a book about, you know, personalities or gossip or settling scores. I didn’t think he was relevant.”
Well, that's a kindness, says Mrs.Buce.  He's saying that none of it was Scott's fault.
