Gibbs: No White House shakeup
By Anne E. Kornblut
Will there be a real shakeup in the beleaguered Obama White House?
Press secretary Robert Gibbs played down the idea on Monday.
Asked if there will be other personnel changes in addition to the stepped-up involvement of former campaign manager David Plouffe, Gibbs replied: "I'm not aware of others."
Plouffe's greater engagement - he will coordinate the White House effort to win elections in 2010 without becoming an official White House aide - comes after the Democratic defeat in last week's special election in Massachusetts for Ted Kennedy's former Senate seat. There have not been dismissals - so far. And even Plouffe's arrival, Gibbs said, "may have been a tad overwritten in the sense that this is not him taking over every campaign in 2010."
"This is about him working internally on strategy with the folks that are already here," Gibbs said.
