WASHINGTON---On his last full day in the White House, Senior Advisor David Axelrod and I talked about his two years in the White House, the 2012 Obama re-election campaign ahead and, of course, Rahm Emanuel's mayoral campaign. Read my Sun-Times column here.
Chicago will be headquarters for the 2012 campaign and Axelrod said there will be no Washington/Chicago disconnect. Axelrod told me, "People who objected to the notion of the campaign being in Chicago missed the fundamental point. There is no daylight between the folks who are going out to work on the campaign and the folks here. There is one Obama family. And everybody is on the same page, so I expect there to be a real seamlessness."
