USA Today: The autographed sports gear and stacks of paper that cluttered the small White House office when David Axelrod occupied it have been moved out.

David Plouffe, who favors the clean-desk look, has moved in to the prime real estate just a few steps down the hall from the Oval Office.

Now dominating one wall: A framed copy of the front page of The Des Moines Register from Jan. 4, 2008 – headlining the stunning victory in the opening Iowa caucuses that propelled then-senator Barack Obama’s presidential campaign.

Plouffe was Obama’s campaign manager in 2008 and, in preparation for the re-election campaign in 2012, has taken a senior adviser role at the White House for President Obama now.

“My favorite piece of newspaper memorabilia from the campaign,” Plouffe allows.
