Where's Valerie?

Another Obama confidante has gone missing. Remember when Rahm disappeared to Africa during the transition? He was a central figure in the Blago scandal and was conveniently out of the country for most of it.

Well, Valerie Jarrett has also been linked to the Blago senate seat auction and she's been out of the news. Nada. Zip.

There is a rumor she was on Air Force One with the prez when he came to Chicago but has anyone seen pictures? Any interviews?

Here was the woman who hired Michelle Obama at city hall. The woman who was so close to Obama that she could finish his sentences for him. An expert on public projects.

So you would think that with all the block grant money (CDBGs) in the stimulus bill Ms. Jarrett would be all over the country pumping up mayors and governors, telling the story to the press that the stimulus package will bring lots of money to the local communities and that everyone should write their congressman and tell him to vote for it.

That's the way it's supposed to work. But I'm guessing that the cards and letters to the White House and Congress were urges to vote AGAINST porkulus.

So, maybe Valerie was busy. Where? She hasn't generated any Internet traffic since December 9th, the day Blago was arrested.

Perhaps she'll come out of hiding for Black History Month. She is related to Robert Taylor and Vernon Jordan.
