Surfing around this morning after my bike ride I found this video of Cory Booker the mayor of Newark being interviewed by "The New Yorker". It is well worth your time --- he is a true American hero.
Cory Anthony Booker (born April 27, 1969) is the mayor of Newark, New Jersey. He is a Democratic politician and former Newark Councilman and community activist who ran unsuccessfully for mayor in 2002 against longtime incumbent Sharpe James. Booker ran again in 2006 and won a sweeping victory against Ronald Rice to become the 36th mayor of Newark. Booker is a graduate of Stanford, Oxford (as a Rhodes Scholar), and Yale Law School.
