Newark, New Jersey mayor Cory Booker knows the value of showmanship. He, for example, demonstrated how hard it is to make it on food stamps by simulating living on them. The media loved it. He could return decent theatre back to the U.S. Senate.
As POLITICO reports, Booker announced he is running for Frank Lautenberg's seat. The odds are that he will win. It would be a riot to have one Jersey Boy in the U.S. Senate and another - Chris Christie - in the White House. The Garden State could become cool.
