Unsurprising news: Robert Gibbs leaving White House to work on Obama reelection
I don’t why this is surprising, since the 2012 cycle is heating up, but this is news nonetheless. From Politico:
White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said Wednesday that he is leaving his job as President Barack Obama’s chief spokesman in the next few weeks to serve as a private-sector consultant for Obama’s re-election campaign and Democratic media surrogate.
The 39 year-old Alabama native – the consummate Obama insider – confirmed what had been reported in POLITICO and other news outlets – that he’s decided to leave the White House rather than stay on in a new capacity, as many had expected.
