Was Obama the ultimate alpha-male?
Former White House advisor Valerie Jarrett complained in her new book that there was a “general macho atmosphere” in the Obama White House.
Jarrett explained that after noticing that the overall dynamic in the West Wing was “causing women to feel uncomfortable,” she took former President Barack Obama aside and confronted him.
“If you notice, in meetings, the women rarely talk,” Jarrett reportedly told the president. “And when you aren’t there to ask their opinion, they are becoming increasingly mute.”
After she said that, Obama invited a number of the senior women to the White House in response and, over dinner, discussed how they could make things better.
It’s not his fault. A guy like Barack just oozes manliness from every pore. Men want to be him, chicks want to be with him.
