Press Secretary Robert Gibbs to Leave White House Next Month

Photo Courtesy - Getty Images(WASHINGTON) -- White House press secretary Robert Gibbs will be stepping down from his position in February, ABC News has learned.

Aides confirmed his scheduled departure on Wednesday.

President Obama is, according to sources, happy with Gibbs’ work as press secretary, but Gibbs is eager to leave the podium and assume a more “senior counselor” role.

Democrats say Gibbs is exploring the possibility of serving as an outside adviser for the White House, DNC and the re-election campaign.  That might allow Gibbs the opportunity to create a defined and effective role, albeit one outside 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
