Robert Gibbs is Back

Former White House press secretary Robert Gibbs -- who had clashed openly with Michelle Obama and Valerie Jarrett -- has returned to the Obama campaign, BuzzFeed reports.

His dispute with Mrs. Obama "became public -- and immortalized -- when he was quoted in Jodi Kantor's book, The Obamas, published earlier this year as having said 'fuck her too' during an argument about the First Lady. It wasn't the first time foul language had been used in private in Washington, it's true, but it did undermine Gibbs' ability to plausibly claim he spoke for the entire administration."

Explained one Obama adviser: "There was a cooling off period."
