Not getting the same kind of press that Harris got. Kind of low-key,

Just another entry on the list of candidates I will never ever vote for.

Everything I post is just my opinion, and, honestly, I would love to be wrong.

No thanks. He chose corporations rather the American people on issues already.
His vote against Sanders’ bill to get cheaper medications from Canada may sunk any chance he had of winning the Democratic primary

Good. Let’s split the Vichy Dem vote as many ways as possible, thus leaving Bernie as the last candidate standing.

Cory Booker launches an unconventional White House bid built on ‘universal love’

I hope I’ve responded in the correct place.
Marianne Williamson would not work with Cory Booker, because she is the real thing: a true Progressive, like Bernie. I have followed her for a long time and she has said all the right things. (One of the plans Marianne is looking into is 100 billion for slavery reparations. Such language would likely make a neolib like Cory run away, screaming in terror.) I realize she has no real chance at winning the nomination, but she is a powerful speaker and best-selling author, so a welcome addition to the debate stage!

Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey said Friday that he will seek the Democratic nomination for president, adding his name to a growing and increasingly diversified field of 2020 candidates intent on taking on President Trump.
Booker made his announcement via an email and video to supporters.
“The history of our nation is defined by collective action; by interwoven destinies of slaves and abolitionists; of those born here and those who chose America as home; of those who took up arms to defend our country; and those who linked arms to challenge and change it,” Booker said in his video, which made repeated references to Trump and his actions as president.
“I believe that we can build a country where no one is forgotten, no one is left behind; where parents can put food on the table; where there are good-paying jobs with good benefits in every neighborhood; where our criminal justice system keeps us safe, instead of shuffling more children into cages and coffins; where we see the faces of our leaders on television and feel pride, not shame,” he said.
Looks like he’s trying to be another “horoscope” candidate like Obama, full of pretty noises that mean nothing. He will fail as well. Maybe Bernie ought to wait a few more months just to let all of these worthless Vichy Dems self-destruct before he even announces.

The way it’s going now, they’ll have to hire a stadium for the primary debates and there won’t be room for audience.
The question has become “Who isn’t running?”

I can’t wait for the debate between Bernie, Tulsi, Liz, and the 17 dwarves.

Booker is as unacceptable to me as Harris.
I would like to remind you that U.S. health insurance companies do not contribute anything to health care. They are only a PARASITIC middle man receiving an undeserved cut of "FREE MONEY".
