Speaking on Fox News Sunday, White House Senior Advisor David Axelrod announced that he would be leaving the Obama Administration sometime in the first half of next year to begin planning Barack Obama's 2012 reelection campaign.

Axelrod, speaking from Chicago, said that until that time comes, he would be working with Obama in dealing with the GOP-led House once all the new congressmen elected two weeks ago are seated.
