Axelrod: Bill Clinton is Absolutely Right

Fresh off a tense exchange with Clinton strategist Mark Penn at a forum at Harvard last night, Obama strategist David Axelrod selectively embraced the words of the former President to make the case for his candidate – and against Hillary.

“Bill Clinton famously said that elections are about the future and he’s right,” Axelrod told me in an interview this morning. “He’s absolutely right. And I think Barack Obama represents the future.”
