The King Maker

Valerie Jarrett is one of Barack Obama’s most trusted cronies. Officially, she holds the title of Senior Adviser and Assistant to the President for Intergovernmental Affairs and Public Engagement. That’s some title! Can there be more?

Obama holds her close to his person and his life. Obama and his wife share their secrets only with Jarrett. Michelle Obama had this to say about Valerie Jarrett, “She knows the buttons, the soft spots, the history, the context.”

Here is what Edward Klein writes about Jarrett in his best selling book The Amateur:

"In part, her influence stems from the fact that 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 pat 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 political agendas."

So…my question is…who is running this country?
