Valerie Jarrett Named Obama Senior Adviser
Source: CBS

Valerie Jarrett, a long-time adviser campaign adviser to President-elect Barack Obama, will be joining Obama's senior team in the White House.

The Obama team named Jarrett as a senior White House adviser. Jarrett has been one of the president-elect's closest confidants during the long run for the White House. She also has been serving on Obama's transition team.

Sources tell CBS 2 Jarrett, a former CTA Board Chairman, is taking a job at the White House.

An old family friend of Michelle and Barack Obama, Jarrett said she will be a senior adviser to the new president. She will apparently have the same job title, but presumably different duties, as David Axelrod, chief political strategist for Obama.

1. I'm a little confused about what these "senior advisor" positions are
Are these positions standardized at all, or does each president just get a certain budget to spend however they like on personal staff, and they figure out how they want to run things?
