Obama continues to make history:
Prominent Chicago businesswoman Desiree Rogers will be named the White House social secretary, according to a series of news reports. The 49-year-old Harvard MBA will be the first African-American to hold the post.
Rogers, 49, is a friend of Michelle and President-elect Barack Obama’s, and a leader in Chicago corporate and civic circles; her appointment signals that the first couple consider the job crucial to how they introduce themselves to the country and the globe. She was a major fundraiser for Obama.
According to news reports, Barack Obama will also introduce his economic team later today. He’s doing us proud. Obama done swooped down and grabbed the reigns like a true maverick. Lawd knows we need the change – in every way.
And he still makes time for us regular folk. Dig Obama during a recent visit to Manny’s Coffee Shop & Deli in Chicago.
