Meet Valerie Jarrett, The De-Facto POTUS
Edward Klein the author of the new book The Amateur has a wonderful column in the Daily Caller about the alarming power of Valerie Jarrett, President Obama's ever-present muse -- and that's putting it kindly. Here's an excerpt: "Jarrett is the president’s trusted watchdog. She protects the vainglorious and thin-skinned Obama from critics and complainers who might deflate his ego. No one gets past Jarrett and sees the president if they have a grievance, or a chip on their shoulder, or even an incompatible point of view. That goes for such high-profile supporters as Oprah Winfrey and Caroline Kennedy, who have been largely frozen out of the White House because Jarrett believes they would use the opportunity of a meeting with Obama to push their own competing agenda."
