White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs announced today that he will depart the West Wing to head up Barack Obama's re-election campaign.
The departure will take place in early February, after President Obama delivers his State of the Union speech to the new Congress. As a private consultant, Robert will remain a top political adviser to the president as the re-election campaign gears up. So far, no replacement has been named. You ready for 2012?
