According to notes from the recent NLC meeting the contemptible Robert Gibbs is giving McDonald's Operators political advice. Talk about letting the fox into the barnyard !
Making predictions is a risky business but I think his future will go in one of two directions.
If Hillary Clinton wins the White House Gibbs will have an opportunity to leave McDonald's
and go to work for organized labor joining their reenergized efforts to organize McDonald's
and eventually the entire industry. With the internal knowledge he's gained at McDonald's
he would be a great asset to the SEIU and others.
If Hillary Clinton does not win the election the Clinton crime family will go down in flames.
Keep in mind, the Democrat party has historically been dominated by family hierarchies:
Roosevelts, Kennedys, Clintons, etc. If the Clintons have to spend the rest of their lives
avoiding prison they won't have much political clout. The party will be leaderless. Into that
void will step the Obama family. Lacking a taxpayer funded staff they will need to bring
together their loyal henchmen to rebuild the Democrat party. Gibbs could be a key figure
in that reconstruction and go on to be a power player in the 2018 and 2020 elections.
It's unlikely Gibbs will be around to celebrate his two year anniversary in Oak Brook. But,
along the way, he'll have done great harm to the McDonald's Operator community. Nothing
good can result from taking business advice from a liberal.
