One advantage of a big, media-focused convention is that so many shadowy campaign "insiders" seek the spotlight. In Denver, one of Sen. Barack Obama's closest advisers has been making the media rounds: Valerie Jarrett. Jarrett has been part of Obama's inner circle since his days as an Illinois state senator. She identifies herself as a Chicago businesswoman, but according to Obama campaign advisers, she is much more than that.
She is Iranian-American, for one thing, and the Obama campaign has sought to keep her ties to Iran from press views, as it has also sought to keep her political background and deep and tangled business and personal relationship to the Obama family from sight. For example, while it's true that Jarrett is a business executive, she also has been a well-known political operative for Chicago Democrats back to her days

When will Fox send a camera team to simply document what Obama’s old state senate district looks like? If he’s so effective for the nation, shouldn’t we take a glance at how he did on his own adopted local turf?
That explains the One’s desire to meet with Imadinnerjacket with no preconditions. He’ll have a letter of introduction from another good friend, Valerie Jarrett.
That reminds me. What happened to Huma A Layin? (Hill’s muslim bunkmate.)
I don't know ANYTHING about this story, got a good link for a curious mind?
Huma has been under a press blackout imposed by Hilderbeast. It is almost impossible to gt a shot of her. As for Valerie, http://www.iranian.com/main/singlepage/2008/valerie-jarrett and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valerie_Jarrett
But I suspect that some of those who came to this country post-Shah 1979 are Sleepers.
Thanks for the ping; post.
Check her Wiki profile. She isn’t Iranian. She was born there of American parents.
You are welcome.
