Watch this Man
One of the superstars of the Obama campaign is his senior strategist, David Axelrod. As a political consultant based in Chicago, a former Chicago Tribune reporter, and a passionate Bulls fan, Axelrod has resisted previous offers to relocate to Washington, but people are starting to speculate about what role he may play in the Obama Administration. Here's an article from Chicago Business News.
Whatever he does, in Chicago or Washington, Axelrod will likely have an influence in the administration's policy related to disabilities. His daughter, in her 20s, has developmental disabilities, and Axelrod's wife Susan co-founded Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy.
UPDATE: Alexrod has accepted the position of senior advisor in the White House.
