| No Comments

White House senior advisor David Axelrod, on NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday was asked by host David Gregory if Obama will campaign for Chicago mayoral hopeful Rahm Emanuel.

Said Axelrod, "Well, the president has made clear what his view of Rahm is. He said he was an excellent chief-of-staff, thought he would be an excellent mayor. Whether he involves himself actively in this campaign is a matter that we haven't yet decided. But I think his view of Rahm is very clear."
