Pastor Michael Harrison introduced Valerie Jarrett, Obama’s Senior Advisor, like she was a professional wrestler. I was ready to hear him say “Are you ready to rumble?!” They even strobed (flickered) the lights to let us know that she’s a heavy hitter.
Valerie received an amazing ovation and she electrified the room. I almost had to elbow my way to the front to get this photo for you (to left).
After a rousing challenge to everyone in the room, Valerie ended with “I wanna know: Are you fired up?” And everyone screamed even louder than they had before.
