    Cool vetted Obama surrogate

    What kind of mission a vetted Obama surrogate does?

    My problem in this expression is the meaning of "vetted" and "Surrogate"

    Thanks

    Re: vetted Obama surrogate

    That is an incomplete sentence. Could you check for accuracy?

    Vetted = has been checked out and passed as acceptable
    Surrogate = temporary replacement.

    Text talks about a movie actress who as an extra activity is "a vetted Obama surrogate" and has spent last year out on the campaign trail.

    Thanks

    Re: vetted Obama surrogate

    Seems she is offered as an alternative attraction to those who hoped to see Obama in action.

    So, she is a proved one in favor of Obama and represents him on campaign. Isn't it?

    Re: vetted Obama surrogate

    I have no idea. Who is the actress?

    Sh is merely standing in for him at those events he is not able to attend. There is nothing else to indicate any political affiliation except that if she has been vetted, she will at least not hold opposing views.

    The Actress is Tracee Ellis Ross. I suppose that if she is standing for him at those events she must be on Obama's side. Mustn't it? No idea either.
