The Tampa Bay Times caught up with senior Barack Obama campaign adviser David Axelrod while he was in Gainesville Wednesday night. And, boy, does Alexelrod love him some Charlie Crist.
“The president has a very high regard for Gov. Crist. He made a really courageous decision back in 2009 and there’s no doubt that he made it because he thought it was what was best for the state of Florida. He understood the politics were difficult and he made it nonetheless. He deserves enormous credit for that and the courage he showed. You know we all talk about that we want public officials who are willing to put the next generation ahead of the next election and he was willing to make a decision like that. So we admire him.”
