Former White House Advisor David Axelrod Joins CNN as Commentator


David Axelrod, formerly President Obama’s senior advisor and then 2012 re-election campaign senior strategist, will be joining CNN as a senior political commentator. CNN announced the new hire in a statement by the network’s Washington Bureau Chief Sam Feist: “An all-around respected, well-connected commentator on the American political scene, we are delighted to have David join us and look forward to him sharing his political analysis with our global audience.” David is the founder of AKPD Message and Media and directs the University of Chicago’s Institute of Politics.

Blue Engine Message & Media got a preview of David’s political commentary when he came to our office in May (pictured below) to talk about his new book, “Believer.”
