Top Clinton Adviser to Join Fox News

Howard Wolfson, one of the members of Hillary Rodham Clinton's innermost circle and perhaps the most visible member of the New York senator's television surrogates, is joining Fox News Channel as a Democratic analyst.

Wolfson confirmed the move this evening via email. In addition to his part time commentary duties on FNC, Wolfson will remain a partner at the Glover Park Group -- a major consulting firm in Washington, D.C.

"Fox has the largest audience in cable television -- many of its viewers are independents who will help decide the next election," said Wolfson of his decision. "It's critically important for strong progressives to be talking to and offering analysis to that audience."

Wolfson said he doesn't have (and has never had) any plans to write a book about his experience on the Clinton campaign and, as for whether he would join Barack Obama's general election bid, Wolfson said he was focused on his work at GPG and with Fox.

Wolfson joins former White House deputy chief of staff Karl Rove in an analyst role. Rove was hired by the network in February. The network also inked Clinton supporter Lanny Davis to a deal last month.

Fox News Channel ended 2007 as the top rated cable news network, according to Broadcasting & Cable.
