I for one do not get a warm and fuzzy feeling when I encounter Axelrod on the TV but he most certainly has been an asset to Obama. What I don't understand is why Hillary wanted the very creepy Penn and his creepy view of politics in the first place. How in the hell did he help her? I admit I was against her running in the first place because I feared the negatives, the polarizing and galvanizing, but given she did run I was at the very least willing to listen to her make her case. In the end I will vote for her but it's fairly clear she won't be there at the end because of the terrible campaign she has run.
