Words Fail Axelrod on Historic Day for Obama

An emotional David Axelrod said this morning that words fail him today, but they won't fail Barack Obama as he addresses the nation following his swearing in.  

Axelrod said the president-elect wrote his inauguration speech last weekend, and has been practicing it over the past few days.

Axelrod moves into the office adjoining the President as his senior advisor, beginning this afternoon.  

Asked about the daunting challenges facing the new Obama administration, the long-time Chicago political consultant said they are realistic about the challenges ahead.
