WOOD-RIDGE - Obama Senior Advisor David Axelrod said he doesn't expect Newark Mayor Cory Booker to muzzle himself for the remainder of the general election.
Nor does he want Booker to stay underground, he told PolitickerNJ.com here at a rally where he formally endorsed the re-election of U.S. Rep. Steve Rothman.
"No, I don't think so," Axelrod said, when asked if Booker should sideline himself after saying he felt nauseated by ads on both sides of the aisle, including one by Obama's messaging department that blasts Mitt Romney's ties to Bain Capital.
"We disagree, but to the extent that he clarified his remarks, I think it's fine," said the president's senior advisor.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It’s not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” - Nelson Mandela- Public Domain
