CHICAGO, Illinois (CNN) – A source with the Obama Transition team tells CNN Senior Political Correspondent Candy Crowley that a plan to name David Axelrod a Senior Adviser to the incoming President is "in the works."
Axelrod was the Obama presidential campaign's chief strategist, and a top adviser to Obama during his run for the Senate in 2004.
what a loser
YES, I LOVE DAVID, HE IS B...R...I....L....L....I....A....N....T
Makes sense to me...and I expect David Plouffe to have a position soon too...you have to have people you can TRUST around you...
And to all the whining Republicans, there are PLENTY of posts that he can put a Republican/Independent in so stop crying....
If he worked miracles on the Campaign trail and they do a bang up job in the White House, He is a smart man and he wants the best of the best.
Let it be known that President Elect Barack Obama is the most prepared presidential aspirant and president elect of all time.
Awesome, I'm glad Obama kept Axelrod around!
Axelrod is brilliant! I am so impressed with all of the people President-elect Obama is surrounding himself with.
Lets run this country like the campaign!
Great – D.Axerold was a great champaign strategist – he was awesome – and I look forward to seeing more from him!!!
Obama is doing great – your surroundings are very important
Axelrod is one brilliant strategist and I'm so pleased that he will remain with the Obama team at the White House. This man left no stone unturned in navigating the pathway to getting Obama elected.
All good news so far for the Obama transition to POTUS.
Another top-notch choice! Good job President-elect Obama!
Very good choice...he has been a part of all of this, and should stick around.
No surprise there. I'm glad Axelrod is going to continue the journey! He is another calm, voice of reason that was extremely welcome during the election season.
This will be an excellent and well deserved choice!
You two should be sure to send flowers to ACORN for all their help getting you the white house.
I can only think of a slogan I saw on a taxi cab which is a play on another popular slogan: If it ain't broke, don't break it!
ANOTHER GREAT PICK!!! I
FINALLY SET UP MY 401K WITH MY NEW JOB WITH CONFIDENCE THAT WHEN I RETIRE 50 YEARS FROM NOW, I CAN THANK OBAMA FOR GETTING THE BALL ROLLING AGAIN!!!
this is fun.
He's a smart guy ... what do we pay a Senior Advisor?
good move Team Obama =)
After the way Axelrod handled the Obama campaign, this would only be sure genius.
Good. The man is clearly a genius. Whatever you say about Obama, you have to admit the strategy execution of his campaign were brilliant and nearly flawless. I think its safe to say Axelrod had a lot to do with that.
Lieberman is a true American and understands what made this country great. He did not drink the Kool-Aid all of you liberal haters did, but rather used his brain. He saw what was best for this country and acted on it. I am proud of him. Can't wait to see how Obama plans to CHANGE Washington by filling his admistration with career politicians and Washington insiders. I am beginning to lose HOPE for Obama's CHANGE.
With the great campaign they had....this is GREAT news!!! They made an awesome team!
