  •  Cory Booker is pretty cool. (6+ / 0-)

    He is young and energetic. It will be an interesting race should he decide to get into it because the differences will be stark:  Booker is the future, Christie is the status quo. If he chooses not to run, that would be a bad sign.

    •  Cory lost a few people (1+ / 0-)

      when he went on Press the Meat and defended the hedge-funders.  That was a mistake. When it gets to the point (which no doubt it will) that he runs for higher office than governor, you will hear a lot of that on this site.

        Cory Booker's constituents are affluent money manager types. And he will need them to fund his campaign. I don't know that he will go to the wall for them like the Republicans will but he will probably always give them the benefit of the doubt it they deserve it.

        You are right, the purists here will want to castigate him for that. The purists here, once again, will be wrong. Democrats will often be wrong on some issues but Republicans will always be wrong on every issue.

        Jon Corzine was no Purely Progressive Democrat either. In New Jersey it may not be possible to elect such a thing. Over the last 30 years, Florio, McGreevey, Corzine offset by Kean, Whitman and Christie. There is a lot of wealth in New Jersey since parts of it are basically a suburb of New York City.
