Old press secretaries give advice to new press secretary

This is from a couple of months ago, but it's pretty good.

ABC This Week interviews Obama's press secretary, Robert Gibbs, and gets some recent press secretaries to give him advice. Ummm, yeah, thanks Scott McClellan for all that great advice!

McClellan's nickname among the press corps, you may recall, was "that jerk at the podium." Nice!

They also trot out the famous "flak jacket" that the presidential press secretaries pass down to one another and further the myth that "what happens in the flak jacket stays in the flak jacket."

The video starts off with a wonky picture, but it gets better a few seconds in...
