This post is about Robert Gibbs, the man that Barack Obama has chosen to be his spokesperson to the world.Howie P.S.: He's got a point, but I really wonder which is worse: Hillary's support for the war or Gibbs' dirty ad? Hotline is "still scratching their head over the Clinton decision to go after Obama." Markos is still unhappy with Hillary and Vilsack over their stance on the war. Chris Cillizza and Dan Balz report in the WaPo that "Clinton, Obama Camps' Feud Is Out in the Open." Lynn Sweet (Chicago Sun-Times) writes that "Geffen-Clinton snit tests Obama." Sweet also filed "Obama angles for strong start." Tom Daschle discusses his support for Obama and the campaigns for the Democratic nomination for president on The Ed Schultz Show (audio). Markos is no fan of Gibbs, either.
Everytime I see Gibbs as Obama's campaign voice, I get further and further from seeing Obama as a candidate that is strategically smart, different, or an effective transformative leader. I really don't know what Obama is building. Sometimes I get the sense that he believes he can start the progressive online movement all over again, this time in his camp. I can tell though that whatever the Obama camp is building, his spokesman is not our partner.
