Please, please, please Democrats! Make Robert Gibbs your next DNC chair. The epic failure of an inexperienced president is a national tragedy. The epic failure of an inexperienced fundraiser could be a national blessing.
Politico: Democratic insiders are taking the temperature of some top party donors about the possibility of naming White House press secretary Robert Gibbs as chairman of the Democratic National Committee heading into President Barack Obama’s reelection campaign in 2012, senior officials tell POLITICO.
Under the scenario being tested, Tim Kaine, the current DNC chairman and former governor of Virginia, would be named to a top administration post, perhaps in the Cabinet, the officials said.
Donors’ response has been positive, according to people who have been consulted.
