The news media are reporting that Desiree Rogers, a Chicago businesswoman and bonne vivante, will be the next White House social secretary.
Which is, like, the best party-planning job on Earth.
Lois Romano of the Washington Post writes: “The position of social secretary is more influential and far-reaching than the title might suggest.
“Although the job is associated with working with the first lady and with entertaining – and best known for staging state dinners for heads of countries – the social secretary’s office is responsible for every event or ceremony that occurs in the White House or on the grounds.”
Desiree Rogers is a longtime friend of Michelle Obama’s, and she was a major fundraiser for Barack.
