Gibbs May Be Considering a Move to Top DNC Post?

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.

Myers Predicts Press Sec Gibbs Will Step Down

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.
