The Third Way Candidate
If Tom Friedman and Matt Miller ever do get their centrist third party started up, they can pair Cory Booker with Erskine Bowles for electoral gold. This morning on Meet the Press, Booker attacked the Obama campaign for exposing Romney’s record at Bain Capital, saying ““I’m not about to sit here and indict private equity. If you look at the totality of Bain Capital’s record, they’ve done a lot to support businesses — to grow businesses. And this to me, I’m very uncomfortable.”
Democrats for Bain Capital! Well, between this and saving that woman from the fire, at least Booker has probably put himself on the short list for Andrew Cuomo’s VP in 2016.
……..Kornacki suggests Booker’s performance was a stunt of self-promotion since he wants to get extra cozy with private capital in order to fund a likely run for the Senate in 2014. Could be.
