Valerie Jarrett and Desiree Rogers skyrocketing profiles


WASHINGTON--The profiles of Chicago pals White House Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett and White House Social Secretary Desiree Rogers are skyrocketing. They team up--and glam up-- for the cover of the latest Capitol File magazine.

Rogers hit the cover of a recent Wall Street Journal magazine story by Amy Chozick titled
Desirée Rogers--the former Mardi Gras queen who holds the keys to Brand Obama
While I think of Rogers as a Chicagoan--her New Orleans roots are part of every profile.

I saw Rogers and Jarrett Saturday night at the White House Correspondents Association Dinner. POLITICO posted a video of the two having a small snag getting through security at the dinner.



Skyrocketing? I assume that depends on where one is standing.

These ladies are claiming space and taking names.
