Obama's image problem? Administration loses another high-profile woman

The President's Labor Secretary Hilda Solis resigned Wednesday. She was one of eight women in the President's cabinet.

Her resignation comes the same day an image caught our attention in the New York Times.

The White House recently released a photo of President Obama with his top advisers discussing the fiscal cliff negotiations.  The only woman in the picture is Senior adviser to the president Valerie Jarrett.

The problem is all you can see is a portion of her leg – behind another adviser.

Photo of the day: President Obama meets with senior advisors in the Oval Office, Jan. 8, 2013

It appears the White House must have realized their mistake.

Because the same day the New York Times published that picture, the White House released another photo of the President with his advisers. Three women are in the picture and are all visible.
