I need to come clean, I have had a crush on Congresswoman Yvette Clarke for some time. Another confession I should make, is I sometimes watch C-SPAN, but we will save that for another time. Anyway, it's not a creepy thing, I swear. I just think Rep. Clarke is smart, sexy, and charismatic.
Why come clean right now? Well I saw a couple of articles today that reinforced my feelings and I felt now was as good as a time than any to share with the world....
'Call Me Jackie Bauer'
In an appearance on the Brian Lehrer Show on WNYC, Monday, February 9th, Caribbean American Congresswoman Yvette Clarke ended her remarks, which were mostly about the President's stimulus program, with a surprise announcement.
On the show, Clarke took the liberty of associating her and her new position as chair of the Subcommittee on Emerging Threats, Cybersecurity, and Science and Technology within the Homeland Security Committee in Congress, with 24's Jack Bauer, telling Lehrer to `just call me Jackie Bauer.`

Between the federal stimulus package in Washington and the work at home in her district, Rep. Yvette Clarke (D-Brooklyn) obviously has very little time for socializing.
But when the time comes to lay aside policy and constituent concerns, Clarke says she can tear it up with the best of them.
“I can go from salsa to merengue to reggae to dancehall,” she said giddily. “I love to dance. I will party in a heartbeat.”
There you have it. Yvette Clarke is hot.
