Please forgive me if I ask this question

Obama-MSM lovefest cracks up over Valerie Jarrett protégé Desiree Rogers
Desiree Rogers described herself as "giddy with excitement" when she was picked as social secretary for the new Obama White House.
"This is the perfect combination of some of the skill sets that I have," she told the Tribune at the time. "I don't think it can get much better than this."

But a year and one gaffe-plagued state dinner later, it could be a lot better for Rogers. The former head of the Illinois Lottery and Peoples Gas now finds herself in the Washington political cross hairs after a security lapse that allowed gate-crashers into last week's White House gala for Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

The 50-year-old Rogers, a friend of President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, has shown a flair for personal publicity in what tends to be a low-profile position. She has been featured in Vogue and Vanity Fair and boasted of the marketing potential of "the Obama brand."

That has raised eyebrows in Washington, the nation's center of power, cattiness and long knives, where some dismiss her as an imperious fashion plate.
