Talk of White House press secretary Robert Gibbs‘ departure continues, fueled by Gibbs’ statement (or lack of statement) yesterday about a possible move to chairman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC).
“I love my job,” Gibbs is quoted saying in The Hill. Still, he wouldn’t say that he would rule out a move when pressed and saying nothing is tantamount to saying something. The current chairman is former Virginia governor Tim Kaine.
Over the weekend, Politico columnist Mike Allen gave his short list to succeed Gibbs in his Playbook column (in alphabetical order): Bill Burton, Jay Carney, P.J. Crowley, Stephanie Cutter, and Geoff Morrell. Dee Dee Myers, former Clinton press secretary and current Glover Park Group MD, is also predicting Burton will be next in the role.
