Even if it is (and that would be newsworthy), it's the appearance of one Michigan governor that has a lot of pundits speculating.
Jennifer Granholm, the current Chief Executive of the Wolverine state, is scheduled to attend tomorrow's event.
She's no stranger to the Obama White House. In fact, during the 2008 campaign, she's the one they called in to prep then-Senator Biden for the high stakes vice presidential debate.
And considering Biden's loquacious nature, this was a titanic assignment. And considering that the debate was not Titantic-like, it speaks highly of Granholm's abilities.
"I think the governor's primary objective in coming is an announcement we'll make tomorrow on a different topic," he said.
Might there be a secondary objective? Gibbs punted again. "I feel good about my first answer," he said.
Gibbs did say that the president could begin interviewing for the post sometime this week.
He threw out the regular non-quotable quotes as well like, "He is going to interview people he thinks that are qualified, and make a pick as to the person he thinks is best qualified."
You can watch President Obama and Governor Granholm tomorrow during the national tailpipe strategy event at 12:15pm tomorrow. We understand it's BYOB (Bring Your Own Banana).
