Obama’s Press Secretary worked for Skull and Bones ‘John Kerry’

Who’s who on Obama’s new team

Robert Gibbs, as Communications Director for the Obama campaign, has long been the president-elect’s public face.

If, as US media outlets suggest, he is to take up a new post as White House Press Secretary, he will be the public face of the entire administration.

A southerner, Mr Gibbs worked for Mr Obama in his Senate office and served as a press secretary in John Kerry’s 2004 presidential bid.

He made frequent appearances on television during the 2008 campaign, and was popular with members of the press.
