A Day in the Life: Inside the State of the Union with Valerie Jarrett

Assistant to the President Valerie Jarrett takes over the White House Instagram account to give the people an inside look of the preparation surrounding the 2014 State of the Union.

There's really no other process like the State of the Union -- it's always an exciting and hectic week to be at the White House.

Of course, it's a process that involves a lot of policy experts and writers from around the building -- but input and ideas from brilliant folks outside the building are just as important. That's why our team has held a series of conversations with the American public about when they hope to hear in the President's address next Tuesday.

Today, I took over the White House's Instagram account to give you a sense of what that process looks like -- take a look, and don't forget to tune in next Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET.
