…No comment. Via Politico:

NBC News and MSNBC’s new contributors — and former advisers to President Barack Obama — Robert Gibbs and David Axelrod both say they’re not going to be acting as partisan cheerleaders while serving as political analysts. …

“I don’t see it either as being a cheerleader for the president or as a spokesman for the administration’s point of view,” [Gibbs] said. …
