Obama Team To Speak At UAlbany

Three men very close to Barack Obama who assisted and advised him, crafting his campaign as he rose from freshman Senator to presidential candidate and beyond, will be in Albany tonight for a public event.

The University at Albany Student Association's  "World Within Reach" speaker series, which has featured President Clinton and hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons in the past, will host David Axelrod, David Plouffe and Jon Favreau for a night "Inside the Obama Campaign." Axelrod is Obama's former senior advisor, Plouffe was his campaign strategist and Favreau was the president's speechwriter.

The event marks the first speaking engagement in which Axelrod, Plouffe, and Favreau have appeared onstage together. The event begins at 8 p.m. at UAlbany's SEFCU Arena on the uptown Washington Avenue campus.
