"And then there's Van Jones, who recently joined the Obama administration, a special adviser to the president on green jobs. Van started out as a grassroots organizer and became an advocate and a creator of green collar jobs - jobs that are not only good for the environment, but also provide good wages and career advancement for both skilled and unskilled workers, she said.
Obama confidante Valerie Jarrett echoed that praise to a cheering crowd at the Netroots Nation convention this summer. Van Jones, we were so delighted to be able to recruit him into the White House, we have been watching him really...for as long as he's been active out in Oakland... and all of the creative ideas that he has... and now we have all of that energy and enthusiasm in the White House," Jarrett said.
And Vice President Joe Biden also had spotted Jones, whom he met at an administration-sponsored roundtable in February, Jones told POLITICO in an interview earlier this year.
"I just spoke from my heart and [Biden] looked me right in the eye...It wasnt like he was taking notes or distracted...And hes taken those ideas on board and thats the kind of person he is, he is very down to earth..,,and Ive since worked very closely with him and his staff to get a lot of those ideas implemented, Jones said.

Who would want to claim knowledge of Van Jones.
Watch for occupywallstreet to get a lot worse real soon.
Van Jones is joining in with his Reclaim the American Dream and Anonymous is threatening an end to Wall Street on the Internet as of October 10.
For this administration, the White House should be named Moronsland, Idiotsville, or Cluelesscity. They are truly living in their own world.
I really doubt it. Can you point to anything this lame Commie Pinko has been able to do successfully? All we get out of this dude is angry screeds on the Tea Party and how he is going to out do them, only to fail later. Let's remember the last time the left and good ol' Van pulled out all the stops.
No one showed up. Not even with the free busing and lunch. WI protests were a bust and this Occupy BS doesn't look like more than an poorly attended Phish concert.
Attending: Van Jones, Harry Reid, President Clinton, Al Gore
Green collar jobs?? Are they for people who don’t wash their necks?
“Watch for occupywallstreet to get a lot worse real soon.”
Especially when the New Black Panthers join them after congress announces a special prosecutor to investigate the NBP’s protector, Eric Holder.
A perfect storm.
Minnesota Senator seems rather fond of him;
Senator Klobuchar (D-Mn) 2009
Klobuchar As Van Jones has said, who is a guy who has written a book about the green collar economy, when you think about the green economy, dont think about Buck Rogers; think about joe six-pack putting on a green hard hat. Think about Rosie the riveter manufacturing solar panels and wind turbines. This is President Obamas plan jobs, jobs, jobs.
“Green collar jobs??”
They’re the modern equivalent of “copperheads” - no wonder their collars turn green!
“Damned liar”, is my opinion.
My subscription to GBTV was well worth it as payback to Glenn Beck for exposing Van Jones and Anita Dunn.
