Education of David Axelrod

David Axelrod’s Professional Career

Axelrod has worked as a consultant for former Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley for many years. He also worked for John Edwards’ lost presidential campaign in 2004. Axelrod was hired by the Liberal Party of Ontario in 2002 to help Dalton McGuinty and his party win the election to the government in the October 2003 election. In 2006, Axelrod worked on several campaigns, including Eliot Spitzer’s successful gubernatorial campaign in New York and Deval Patrick’s victory as governor of Massachusetts.

He wrote an op-ed for the Chicago Tribune in defense of patronage after two top employees in the administration of longstanding client Chicago Mayor Daley was charged for what federal prosecutors called “pervasive fraud” in City Hall hiring and promotions. As a contractor, he worked for Exelon, an Illinois-based utility that possessed the largest nuclear reactor fleet in the United States. In 2006, he served as the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee’s chief strategy advisor in the United States. Rahm Emanuel, United States Ambassador. He was a Communication Studies Associate Professor at Northwestern University. DePaul University bestowed upon him an honorary degree in Human Letters in 2009.

During the 2008 presidential campaign, Axelrod considered leaving politics. Obama spoke with Axelrod before delivering an anti-war speech in 2002. Axelrod was instrumental in developing the Obama campaign’s main slogan, “change.” The theme of change played a role in Obama’s victory in the Iowa caucuses. He slammed the Clinton campaign’s messaging, saying that “being the ultimate Washington insider is not where you want to be in a year when people want change.” Axelrod also claimed that Hillary Clinton’s team overlooked the importance of caucus states. Using the caucus model, Obama won the majority of states in the 2008 primary season.

In campaign advertising, he employed “man on the street”-style biographical movies to create a sense of familiarity and reality. He claimed that Clinton’s first political positioning was misguided and played into our hands. Axelrod is credited with establishing a policy allowing individuals to join. In 2007, Axelrod’s sophisticated use of the Internet assisted Obama in mobilizing fewer than 30 voters and generating more than 475,000 donations. Obama’s website allows admirers to tweet, build their webpage, and even make phone calls from home. Axelrod was defined by the New York Times as a “Campaign Guru” with an “appreciation for Chicago-style politics” and a “soft-spoken” and “mild-mannered” demeanor. “He’s not a screamer like some of these guys,” said Bill Daley, Axelrod’s political consultant.
