David Axelrod to speak at Colorado College Friday 

Obama's senior advisor will offer a free talk

Some would debate what was most dazzling about Barack Obama's presidential bid -- the candidate or the campaign that got him elected.

For those who were most smitten with the latter, Friday should be a big day in Colorado Springs: David Axelrod, the campaign's chief strategist and now a senior advisor to Obama, is giving a 5:30 pm talk at Colorado College about "How Change Won."

Tickets for the talk at Shove Memorial Chapel are free and can be picked up at the Worner Campus Center Information Desk, 902 N. Cascade Ave. Leslie Weddell, a CC spokeswoman, says there won't likely be an extra seats for those who procrastinate.

"We expect it to be full," she says.

Axelrod's son Ethan Axelrod is listed on Colorado College's Web site as a history major in this year's graduating class.

David Axelrod, a former reporter for the Chicago Tribune, became senior partner at the Chicago political consulting firm AKP&D Message and Media in 1988.
