Thinking of my friend @mwlippert, a great public servant, attacked while speaking in South Korea yesterday. Wishing him a speedy recovery.Thrilled to see that @ChrisVanHollen has jumped into the Senate race in MD. He was one of the most impressive people I dealt with in DC.

Sad to learn of the passing of Deedee Corradini, fmr mayor of Salt Lake City, a great public servant and one of my favorite clients. R.I.P..@davidaxelrod joins #ChicagoTonight to discuss his new memoir and 40 years of advising @BarackObama, @RahmEmanuel: http://t.co/ATWQN2983o
Retweeted by David AxelrodSmart of Boehner to bury retreat on Homeland Security bill on the day when Bibi's visit will dominate the news.Speech broke no new ground nor offered realistic path short of war. But apocalyptic language & GOP cheerleading tailor-made for his base.Not a plan.Eager for Bibi to make the turn and share his plan for preventing Iran from getting a nuclear weapon. What's Plan B?Iran is a grave issue. But make no mistake: Bibi's speech is more about an "existential threat" to his own electoral prospects in 2 weeks.

What a brave, moving acceptance speech by Graham Moore!!! Chicago is proud of you!Watching @ScottWalker punt on Rudy's rant, Obama's faith-even evolution-it strikes me he may do better in the NFL draft than the GOP race.Looking forward to talking politics and BELIEVER w/@bobschieffer later this morning on @FaceTheNation!

Looking forward to sitting down with Steve Scher to talk about BELIEVER, tonight @THSEA.One of the many reasons I love America is that in our country anyone can say whatever they please, however shameless or offensive. #RudyJen Psaki, or @statedeptspox, is an extraordinary talent and even greater person. POTUS is lucky to have her back as comms director.

@carlquintanilla @JimAxelrod Happy to be the instrument for your reunion, you guys!Had a great conversation w/@JimAxelrod (no relation) about my new book BELIEVER, my life and journey in politics. Tomorrow on @CBSSunday.Netanyahu is running clever ad about "Bibi-sitting" in Israel while engaging in not-so-clever "Bibi-SPLITTING" in U.S. Trip is ill-advised.

@Mom_with2boys What a nice note! Thank you.@jpodhoretz @EliAttie Let's talk! :)“@EliAttie: @davidaxelrod if I pre-order three, will you run?” Yikes!In 40 yrs, I've worked w/many unforgettable characters & been part of history. Now I've written my story...1/2...BELIEVER debuts 2/10. Preorder a copy, and I'll sign it for you. http://t.co/zfy8iuYvGT. (Pre-order two, and I may run your campaign!)Needling of GOP candidates on vaccinations underscores prickly nature of presidential politics. Every day brings a new test. It ain't easy!

Surreal to hear McConnell complain on 60 Minutes that recovery has benefitted mostly the wealthy. But ask any more of the wealthy? Nope.From Gaza 2 the campaign trail, Scout Tufankjian is one of America's great photojournalists. Thrilled 2 welcome her this week @UChiPolitics.The old @steelers were remembered for the Immaculate Reception. Given all the hot air, will @Patriots be known for the Immaculate Deflation?

With @drose at the controls, chicagobulls look like @chicagobulls tonight against @spurs. So everyone take a deep breath!@GlennThrush @ron_fournier Thanks for the kind words about my book! Eager for folks to read it.Lots of good buzz about the @davidaxelrod memoir popping in Feb. from ppl who read galleys. especially Axe's childhood/early career stuff.
Retweeted by David AxelrodInteresting 2 read Israeli press on Boehner-Netanyahu deal. Viewed there as risky ploy, brokered by Adelson to lift Bibi's sagging poll #s.Brian Deese, named senior advisor by POTUS, is a star. Among other things, he was unsung hero behind '09 effort to save U.S. auto industry.

The quick reversal in CW is really head-spinning. Post midterm CW: Obama dead! Today's CW: Obama resurgent! Fickle business, this politics.."jonfavs; @jheil it's true, I'm highly irregular.” I'd suggest bran flakes..@jheil @jonfavs All the same things, except Favs would resent being called a "regular guy."
