    Not as much as Valerie Jarrett. You know the one Mayor Daley said was an incompetent.

    This is why I qualified the statement with the words "at least".

    And I didn't take issue with the amount she's donated over the years. I'm trying to understand why she's accused of "buying" the post when most every cabinet position appointee has done the same. Is it the amount, is the amount during an election cycle, thedividuals, is it the party. What sets her apart from the others ??

    The WaPo title for the video is a lie. She answered the questions just fine.

    Bo fell for it hook and sinker. The video disproves the point he wanted to make.
