White House press secretary Robert Gibbs is nearing the end.
Gibbs said Monday that this is his last week as press secretary before he moves out of the White House and Jay Carney, former spokesman for Vice President Joe Biden, takes over.
"I'm going to miss almost all of you," Gibbs joked Monday during his briefing, confirming that this is his last week.
The timing of Gibbs's departure means Carney's first big task will likely be selling Obama's budget, which comes out Feb. 14.
