2. As much as I would love to see that, probably not
He's too much of a liberal for the President's tastes and the corporations the President kisses up to on a regular basis.

4. Only SLIGHTLY more likely than Obama naming Palin as Sec of State...
.... I like both Keith and the President (duh) but when he talked about "the cable news chatter" he wasn't ONLY speaking of Fox.

5. Love ya MinM, but could your really imagine Obama...
the incredibly conflict-avoidant, consensus-craving Obama hiring KO in that position?

8. Naw, I don't think he's nearly unctuous or duplicitous enough.
Edited on Fri Jan-21-11 11:39 PM by Umbral
Not that he'd ever be offerd the job anyway.

9. Not with this admin, not with any admin.
God love him, KO is not the right kind of person for a press secretary. It's not even a matter of willing to knuckle down to the corporate elite or whatever. He's too bullheaded, and I say that as someone who depended on him to get me through the Bush years.

11. Sorry, Folks, But I would really love to see KO hand some of the press their ass on a platter!
And he would!

And then tell them to STFU! Maybe a little fighting spirit after Gibbs!

16. your job keith will be to voice the opinion of the administration
and not express your personal opinion if they at all differ with your boss. Your boss is also moving to the center to attempt to recapture the independents who stampeded from the democrats in the november elections, so hiring someone like you Keith will be a critical step in winning back the center since you are known for your centrist views. You are also well known for your pro business views and will be critical in our fundraising eforts gearing up for 2012.

...you have just entered......the twilight zone
