Late last month, the New York Times reported that President Obama’s former press secretary Robert Gibbs was in talks to join Mark Zuckerberg’s company to manage communications and perhaps help fertilize Michelle Obama’s Facebook garden.

Reading about Gibbs’ possible new gig, I figured Team Obama must be foaming at the mouth at the prospect of having a highly placed and dedicated Hope & Change agent working at a company with direct access to millions of people online, as well as their friends, family, high school acquaintances and Texas Hold’em pals.

As far as I know, Gibbs doesn’t even officially have the gig yet, but it’s possible this is an indicator that he does — or it could just be a coincidence:

President Obama will be expanding his town-hall-style sessions to the next frontier, White House officials said on Tuesday: Facebook.

Mr. Obama will hold a town-hall-style meeting with Facebook’s chief executive, Mark Zuckerberg, on April 20, while the president is on a trip to California, his aides said. The session will be conducted from Facebook headquarters in Palo Alto, and will be streamed live.

I just “friended” Obama’s teleprompter in the hopes of getting a preview of the content of the townhall. If Obama answers most questions by referring everybody to “the article in the New York Times,” we’ll know Gibbs has secured the Facebook gig.
