Gibbs: An Insider Look at Obama's First Days

by Benjamin Domenech on 10:13 am February 4, 2009

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs generally arrives at his spacious but unadorned office in the West Wing (he hasn’t had time to decorate yet) at 6 a.m. and spends the next 90 minutes reading newspapers, news summaries, and staff memos. At 7:30, he joins a meeting with Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel and other top presidential advisers; at 8:15 he attends a larger senior-staff meeting, including national security officials, and at 8:45, he meets with his press staff. From then on, it’s a whirlwind of activity all day.
