WASHINGTON ? With his days numbered as the public face of the White House, Robert Gibbs has few regrets about his more than two-year tenure behind the podium in the James Brady Briefing Room. That's not to say he isn't conceding his share of mistakes. "If you do a job for a specific amount of time and look back and say you wouldn't have done anything differently, you probably haven't spent a lot of time thinking back about what you did," he said Tuesday. "I take my transcript home every night and I read my transcript.

Twenty months after Dee Dee Myers got the job of White House press secretary, she took custody Saturday of the spacious office that traditionally has gone with the title. Myers emerged from a recent White House power struggle with her job intact and her powers enhanced. On Saturday, she moved into the office formerly occupied by Communications Director Mark D. Gearan, who has a new job as director of strategic planning and a different office in the West Wing.

Sisterhood is powerful. In the case of the Myers sisters, the feminist slogan takes on a literal ring. Older sister Betsy Myers is following younger sister Dee Dee Myers--the White House press secretary--to an executive job in the Clinton Administration. That's despite the warning that Dee Dee Myers delivered in a sisterly chat this week as they sat in the yard of their parents' home in Santa Clarita. "It's an unforgiving town," the younger sister said.

When the flame began turning up on the Whitewater mess, one small artifact of the story was the disappearance of the daily press briefing for White House reporters. Since March 2, the familiar face of the young woman with the blond shag haircut, the slow temper and sometimes unfortunate gift for the hip one-liner has been missing from the press-room podium.

George Stephanopoulos once occupied one of the most powerful posts in the White House. As a trusted advisor to Bill Clinton, the political whiz kid worked right next to the Oval Office and was a key figure in every major policy discussion. Starting Monday, the 48-year-old will take on a very different assignment. Seated next to co-host Robin Roberts, Stephanopoulos will work behind the anchor desk at ABC's "Good Morning America," charged with delivering both the serious-minded news and the frothier fare that make up the morning television mix. It's an unexpected trajectory for a Rhodes scholar who studied political theology at Oxford -- one that even he says he couldn't have predicted.

What's the hottest ticket in the nation's capital? An engraved invitation to Tuesday's White House state dinner, the first hosted by President Obama. He and the first lady will honor India's prime minister. But in a departure from the traditional venue -- the elegant State Dining Room -- the Obamas will gather with a few hundred VIPs in a huge, heated tent on the South Lawn. The guest list for the black-tie gala remains a closely guarded secret. Vice President Joe Biden and his wife, Jill, will certainly be there.

Re "In Pursuit of Traditional Power," by Dee Dee Myers, Opinion, June 6: Do I understand the scenario correctly? Hillary Clinton is a person with "old-fashioned" beliefs. The misplacement of her telephone records and her spectacular success in commodities speculation--did these also stem from her concept of "old-fashioned beliefs"? If, as Myers mentions, Mrs. Clinton is running for the Senate in order to distance herself from the president, are her contributors and we supposed to fund her inability to resolve the problems in her life?

Jetliner Sale to Iran Under Review: The White House is reviewing a proposal by Boeing Co. and General Electric Co. to pursue a potential multimillion-dollar deal with Iran for commercial aircraft and engines. The Washington Post reported that Iran is interested in buying as many as 20 Boeing 737-400 passenger jets equipped with GE engines, worth as much as $750 million. "We're reviewing it," said White House spokeswoman Dee Dee Myers. "We'll take a look at it out of fairness to the industry."

Re "Stephanopoulos Tells All," March 12: I don't know which is more appalling, our president's sexual escapades and his subsequent lies or that his former aides seem to lack the same moral compass they berate him for losing. George Stephanopoulos defends the decision to write his tell-all book while President Clinton is still in office by saying that other people have done the same thing. Dee Dee Myers, toying with her own book contract no doubt, says that Clinton's lack of loyalty gives her freedom to be disloyal, too. Doesn't this sound like two wrongs making a right?

These are the times that try Clintonites' souls. Will men and women who fought for Bill Clinton in the past step bravely before television cameras to defend his honor now? Or will they hold back for fear they might be caught--as many have before--denying charges that later turn out to be true?
