(Newser) – For the first time in 40 years, Obama adviser David Axelrod is clean-shaven. On MSNBC's Morning Joe, Axelrod pledged during the election to shave his famous mustache if the president lost Pennsylvania, Minnesota, or Michigan. When Obama won all three states, Axelrod said he would still shave if the epilepsy charity he and his wife helped found could raise $1 million by the end of November, the AP reports. It did, partially with the help of unlikely Axelrod ally Donald Trump, who called Morning Joe after Axelrod's shave and said he looks great, but should grow the 'stache back at some point.
