The power woman behind President Obama: It's not his wife.
Valerie Jarret, Senior Advisor and Assistant to the President for Intergovernmental Affairs and Public Engagement
Valerie B. Jarrett is a Senior Advisor to President Barack Obama. She has more power than most people think and she is more influential than Michelle when t comes to politics. The interesting thing about Jarret is that she stays in the shadows as she manipulates the man. Watch her name appear among the candidates for Clinton's vice president. Although she will not be selected because she doesn't have enough recognition, her name will be tossed into the race as a token. After the election she will leave the White House with other Obama loyalists and go back to Illinois politics, running for senate, mayor of Chicago or govenoor of Illinois.
Jarret traveling with Michelle to China incognito. I watched news coverage about Michelle Obama's trip to China with her daughters. Lurking in the background was Valerie Jarret but the news commentator didnot identify her. While Obama is in Europe he may not want Jarret with him in this high profile trip. Raises question is she on the way out because Obama doesn't want her in his administration.
