The Significance Of Van Jones

by Pejman Yousefzadeh on September 10, 2009

My column is out. An excerpt:

After a few days of trying to deny the increasingly obvious, the White House conceded–as quietly as it possibly could over the long Labor Day weekend–that Van Jones needed to go spend more time with his family. While Jones may be little remembered, the lessons that stem from the saga surrounding his foray into public life are worth contemplating.

That leaves you in suspense, I know. So read the rest of the column to find out what lessons I am referring to.

Oh, and don’t cry for Van Jones. He’s landed on his feet just fine.
