Obama's Spiritual Advisor's Film On Hold

Barack Obama's chief political advisor, David Axelrod, is making a film on one of Obama's spiritual advisors, Rev. Michael Pflegerm but that film is currently on hold.
Pfleger's crusades against guns, prostitution, porn and tobacco have made good copy for years for a fairly admiring local press corps hooked on cheering for the underdog, the poor and the powerless.

Pfleger is the subject of a documentary being made by Chicago-based David Axelrod, Obama's top strategist. On Friday, Axelrod told me in an e-mail that the film project has "been dormant for much of the last two years due to other commitments

When asked to comment, Mr. Obama said, "I did not know that".
