I hope she is as good as Sanders was. I wonder who will mock her on SNL ?
Tried, but Whoopi Goldberg is locked into a contract with ABC.

Given the nature of the job, isn't it in the best interest of the person to try to give the point of view of the president? Some of the opposition party (I guess that now includes the press these days) will always try to make it appear that lies are being told. It is extraordinary that virtually most of the MSM is in thrall to the democrats.
it's a thankless job, don't know why anyone would want it, regardless of the party in office.

tony snow was at the end of the bush II administration, i liked him as well.

She also was a mean nasty beyotch--which did not help.

Maybe this woman is a nice person who refuses to lie, in which case she will not last long.
Dare to dream.

I don't know the person you refer to, but I don't remember Ari Fleischer, Jay Carney or Josh Earnest having any issues being liked or being accused of lying.

Sanders is the first one who lied quite often, and very simply could not deal with the press - to the point that the average person thought she was awful. She could not do the job and was a terrible person to be appointed press secretary.

I’m surprised he could find anyone that wants the job, they should add this position to the series “dirtiest jobs”.
