NEW YORK - One of President Barack Obama's top advisers and strategists during his first term has a book deal.
David Axelrod is working on a memoir scheduled for fall 2014. At least two other former Obama administration officials, Hillary Rodham Clinton and Timothy Geithner, also have books planned next year.
Penguin Press announced Axelrod's book on Tuesday. According to Penguin, Axelrod will write about his long friendship with Obama and offer his views on elections and government.
Axelrod helped run Obama's successful campaigns in 2008 and 2012 and worked as an adviser to the president during his first term. The 58-year-old former political writer and ex-columnist for the Chicago Tribune recently joined NBC News as a senior political analyst.
