Tongues are still wagging over the proposed Bill Hemmer move to the White House from his current post at “American Morning”–both his boosters and his detractors are having their say.

As for the CNNers in Washington, his potential future coworkers aren’t thrilled about some of the arrogance they’ve seen from Hemmer, and while he’s been a great anchor on “American Morning,” they’re frankly rather doubtful that he’s ready to be “senior” anything–let alone swoop in above the all-female team currently on Pebble Beach: Suzanne Malveaux, Dana Bash, and Elaine Quijano.

Daryn Kagan says, though, that he’s a rock star, and that wherever he lands, they’ll be lucky to have him.
