        With exception of some good intelligence work, Wyden is pretty much worthless.

      Is Booker still considered a possibly strong candidate for the nomination to be President?

      We know how the primaries work, and how the debates tend to go. He’ll be lucky to not face a serious primary challenge in his next run for the Senate.

      Booker said that the attacks on Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s record at Bain Capital were “nauseating to me on both sides. It’s nauseating to the American public. Enough is enough. Stop attacking private equity. Stop attacking Jeremiah Wright.”

      And

      In a September 2013 interview with The Grio, when asked if he considered himself a progressive, he stated that he is a Democrat and an American. George Norcross III described Booker as “a new Democrat—a Democrat that’s fiscally conservative yet socially progressive.” In May 2012, Booker defended Bain Capital’s record and criticized Obama’s attack on private equity. In response, the Republican National Committee, created a petition called “I Stand With Cory Booker”.

      The trick for him, and the party, would be to keep him out of debates with a fiery progressive.

        He is barely registering any voter interest at all so far.

      This whole law makes no sense, and should be ruled unconstitutional.

      If the public wishes to express a grievance through peaceful action, so be it.

      When such pressure mounts, defend yourself, suffer through it, or change your behavior. Making peaceful action illegal now, enables forceful action later.

      Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.

      everyone on that list would have to go LIVE in Israel for the rest of their lives.  They should inhabit whichever area they consider a priority…
