The profile of Obama Press Secretary Robert Gibbs that we mentioned was coming yesterday is now out. TIME‘s Michael Scherer disects the campaign spokesman’s decision to “pivot” strategy in the initial weeks of the Obama presidency, from “backroom schmoozing, the Capitol Hill and Super Bowl mixers, the bipartisan glad-handing” to notching up “criticism of the Republicans” and setting off on a “cross-country sales tour through struggling towns and cities” for the recently signed stimulus bill.

In reference to the daily White House press briefings, Gibbs told Scherer, “There is a pretty big adrenaline rush when you are out there. You do need about half an hour to just sort of decompress.”
