Facebook Likes Joe Lockhart

In plenty of time to enjoy the IPO, Facebook has hired former White House Press Secretary Joe Lockhart as VP of corporate communications.  The Dem heavyweight will relocate to California once he sorts his family details.  Lockhart became a household name after succeeding Mike McCurry during the Clinton impeachment trials in 1998.

He went on to open the very powerful Glover Park Group firm in 2001, and help John Kerry run for President in 2004.

Showing their need to navigate the choppy waters within the Beltway, Facebook also talked to former Obama spokesman Robert Gibbs about the position.
