Report: Obama Taps Robert Gibbs For Press Secretary

081105_gibbs_297.jpgThat was fast! Partly in an effort keep from replicating Bill Clinton‘s troubled transition and partly because the world the Obama administration is going to encounter in January is such a mess, the President-Elect’s team is wasting no time! Yesterday news broke that Rahm Emmanuel (Raaaaahm in certain circles) had been offered the chief of staff position, and today comes word that Robert Gibbs has been tapped for the position of press secretary. Per Politico:

Gibbs was usually the senior official on Air Obama, the campaign plane. As communications director of Obama’s Senate office, Gibbs was a key strategist in Obama’s rapid move to the national stage…The announcement is likely to be viewed favorably by reporters because Gibbs has unquestioned authority, access and institutional memory.
