Dee Dee Myers, recent addition to D.C. firm Glover Park Group and Twitter, is using her 140 characters to predict that President Obama’s Press Secretary Robert Gibbs will step down after the midterm elections with Deputy Press Secretary Bill Burton stepping up. Burton was the go-to guy for Gibbs when he was on vacation last month. According to the L.A. Times blog, there are others making the same prediction, and Myers herself did the same during the Clinton administration.
In other Glover Park news, the firm has signed (sub req’d) a $400,000 contract with South Korea’s Washington D.C. embassy to handle legislative and government affairs issues.
