Sun 16th Dec at pm. Now this is a great post. I’ve always vaguely thought about the similarities between these two self-preeners, although even McClellan could hardly rise to MacArthur’s level of self-infatuation (hence the famous Eisenhower quote about Marshall and Dugout Doug).

Lincoln’s conflict with McClellan was far more dangerous to constitutional government than the later clash between President Truman and General MacArthur during the Korean War. The Lincoln-McClellan conflict occurred in the midst of civil war and revolution, when the authority of constitutional government itself was under challenge.

General Douglas MacArthur (like Lincoln's general George B. McClellan) was glamorous, willful, egotistical, a darling of the press and feverishly ambitious with political aspirations that were vast.

He also thinks that politics, as practiced by the Radical Republican “bosses,” prevented McClellan from capturing Richmond, and that politics, as practiced by Republican propagandists and accepted by historians, has deprived the General of the high niche in.

If MacArthur saw himself as someone descended lineally from Washington and Lincoln, Harry Truman saw him less flatteringly, as the modern reincarnation of George McClellan. McClellan was the general who, in Truman's view, not only served Lincoln poorly in the field (during the Civil War), but had treated him with open contempt, often.

There is more on the Scott McClellan tell-all book. First, his colleagues and superiors at the White House say he wasn’t in many of the meetings he describes and so was not a witness to those events or the decision-making process.
