WASHINGTON (CNN) - An unlikely tome has been seen in the Obama West Wing: "Courage and Consequence: My Life as a Conservative in the Fight," the new memoir by ex-Bush adviser Karl Rove.
A copy of the book was spotted Wednesday in the office of White House senior adviser David Axelrod, who is arguably Barack Obama's Rove. Axelrod confirmed to CNN he got a copy of the book from White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs and is planning to check it out.
"I will read it," said Axelrod, who noted that he and Rove also were planning to have dinner a few months ago but the event was canceled because of scheduling reasons.
Axelrod hopes to re-schedule dinner with Rove down the road, undoubtedly trying to glean some insights about serving in the White House, dealing with midterm elections, and possibly looking ahead to a presidential re-election battle.
Oh, to be a fly in the wall for that one.
