Once again the dominance of Valerie Jarrett’s role within the Obama White House looms large…
If you want to know – or be reminded – just how influential Valerie Jarrett is . . .
From the pool report:
Air Force One landed at Joint Base Andrews at 4:25 p.m. Eastern time. The president, wearing a dark windbreaker, boarded Marine One along with senior adviser Valerie Jarrett.
David Axelrod and deputy press secretary Josh Earnest came off the rear staircase of the plane and did not board Marine One.
Marine One took off at 4:43 p.m., bound for Camp David.
After your pool held in vans in the President’s Chicago neighborhood for about 90 minutes Saturday morning, Mr. Obama went out for a stroll of about four blocks to the home of his friend, Martin Nesbitt, in the Hyde Park/Kenwood section of the city.
The president walked into your poolers’ view at 11:47 a.m. Central time at 49th Street and South Woodlawn Ave., strolling with senior adviser Valerie Jarrett. He was wearing tan slacks and a white, open-collared shirt with sleeves rolled up. Ms. Jarrett wore a knee-length, navy dress. They were trailed closely by an agent.
