Although there are significant differences between the US and British electoral systems, Ed Miliband's decision to take on one of Barack Obama's key strategists, David Axelrod, can hardly hurt the Labour leader's chances.
David Axelrod, one of US President Barack Obama's top strategists, has been warmly welcomed by Labour after joining their election team, however that did not stop the party's website from misspelling his name.
The news release spelled his name 'David Alexrod' but the website has now corrected the error.
One of US President Barack Obama's top campaign strategists has been recruited by Labour to play a key role in Ed Miliband's bid for Downing Street in next year's general election.
David Axelrod, who is credited with masterminding Mr Obama's presidential victories in 2008 and 2012, will join Labour's general election campaign team as a senior strategic adviser, the party announced.
