Who Eles Is In The “Obama Love Army”?

Jones, while an ardent supporter of President Barack Obama, originally did not intend to work for the White House, later explaining:

Not only did I say I had no intention of going, when they asked the question, I burst out laughing because at the time it seemed completely ludicrous that it would even be an option. I think what changed my mind was interacting with the administration during the transition process and during the whole process of getting the recovery package pulled together. I began to see that there was an important role at the table, inside the process, to do make sure all the great things the president wants to do can get done well. But the real miracle was Phaedra [Ellis-Lamkins, who replaced Jones as head of Green for All]. Having done such an extraordinary job in San Jose and California, Phaedra was ready to graduate to a national role, wanted to stay in the Bay Area. … Once you begin to see that you’re not indispensable—in fact somebody can probably do your job better than you—then your mind kind of opens up to other possibilities. I couldn’t be prouder to be laying my sword on the table along with everybody else in the Obama Love Army, and I’m excited about it.
