Robert Gibbs And Other Obama Friends Leaving White House

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs says it’s been a “remarkable privilege” to be President Barack Obama’s top spokesman.

“I would not trade the worst days here for many of the best days at another job,” Gibbs said today, after announcing his departure from the White House. But he said he wants to “step back a little bit and recharge some” after four years of campaigning and a hard-fought first half of the Obama administration — “probably the busiest years that Washington and the White House have seen in a couple of decades.”

Gibbs said he will leave the podium after the upcoming State of the Union address — but will remain in the Washington area as a pundit, supporting White House positions on cable television and in speeches.
