Obama Campaign Senior Adviser David Axelrod recently spoke with New York Magazine's John Heilemann at 92Y. During the conversation, Axelrod revealed a personal moment linked to the passing of the health care law, when overcome by emotion, he found himself "having a big cry" in front of President Obama. Axelrod thanked the president "on behalf of his family," and was met with the president's arm on his shoulder and a reply of: "this is why we do the work."
