David Axelrod has been selected to be Barack Obama senior White House advisor, a position held by Karl Rove during George W. Bush’s first term in office. Axelrod told Fox’s Chris Wallace that he will do the job differently from Rove.
“My role is circumscribed to those responsibilities. I’m not trying to rebuild the Democratic Party or any of these other – I think Mr. Rove had quite an expansive portfolio. I think mine is very focused,” said Axelrod.
