Axelrod on Bill Clinton: 'We Hope to Establish a Close Relationship'

David Axelrod has appeared in the press enclosure here at the Unity event. He says Hillary will be a “huge force in bringing about the change we all want.”

And her husband?

“We would welcome him. You know, there are only four living presidents and he has so much to offer here. We hope to establish a close relationship.”

Axelrod also predicted his campaign would be accused of “inventing” the tie result here in the primary but “that was what happened.”

And with that, there comes the sound of Obama and Clinton being introduced. No one can see them yet, though, and the crowd, which was cheering wildly, has gone quiet again.

A reporter says to none in particular that HRC might have decided to make a last round of superdelegate calls instead.
