Axelrod Sounding Sad: 'No Matter What, We've Given This Campaign Everything We've Got'

Four years ago, David Axelrod was exuberantly riding the Obama wave. Today, the poor guy sounds decidedly down in the dumps.  Check out this line from an email he sent to people on the Obama campaign list: "I don't know how this is going to end. But no matter what, I know each of us will have given this campaign everything we've got."

Yikes!  Take two Prozac and call me in the morning if you're still down by five in the Gallup poll!  More after the jump.

But seriously, what a depressing message to send to supporters. Could David have seen some inside numbers and know the axe is about to fall?
