Why do I care? I saw a documentary about the two rival candidates and I was googling Corey Booker, trying to figure out how to donate that night. Debra Dickerson gives a much better run-down than I could, so do check it out. It's a story of entrenched, corrupt political power versus the idealism of a man who, as far as I can tell, is perfect (and cute!). I'm sure it's more nuanced than that, but that's why you need to do your own damn research while I figure out a way to seduce him.
