After reading the New York Times article about our friends, Valerie Jarrett, Martin Nesbitt, and Dr. Eric Whitaker, I can’t help but think about how much they have done for Barack and me.

I imagine the public scrutiny has been difficult, but they’ve all come through as true friends, standing by Barack and me every step of the way. We’ve all gotten together more over the holidays, since that long campaign is finally over. And we’re all especially looking forward to another vacation in Hawaii together.
