The Mediators: Cory Booker releases “United”

Wednesday, March 16th, 2016

51-P1XXw7AL._SX327_BO1,204,203,200_

Yes, Cory Booker, whose entire position in the senate is about mediation and unifying and working together, did just publish his autobiography “United.” But why now? Booker, during the last days of New Hampshire, campaigned with Hillary Clinton. He’s rarely mentioned as a VP choice. Why not? All her Vp choices that are being discussed at the moment are not famous. This election is gonna involve a lot of fame. He may come off as very strong, particularly constitutionally, for someone like Hillary (Booker was a wide receiver at Stanford who turned down NFL hysteria (he was very sought after in the NFL draft) to become a Rhodes Scholar, he routinely did things like rescue people in fires or run down criminals in Newark when he was Mayor there) BUT…Hillary is married to Bill Clinton, who in his day could sink icebergs (just by casually bumping into them). She’s used to very seriously constituted men in her life. We feel this is a VP choice. Oh yes, this is a VP choice indeed.  The choice of VPs is really usually very telling. In Trump’s case, he may be a strong enough salesman to sell ANY VP choice (this…we actually doubt…it’s the first really extremely serious judgement call of the nominee BUT in Trump’s case this idea of selling anything is the core element of his success at the moment so…)….

Of course who the candidates will be, as well as who the VP choices will be….remains to be seen….the above…may actually be some strategy in the works and we’re taking note of that possibility…so there you have it.

A Great Day in America

Saturday, June 27th, 2015

Obviously, on the eve of Gay Pride week around the world, a great day in America. Here is the Gay Men’s Chorus of Washington singing the National Anthem in front of a heavily guarded Supreme Court…it’s really just very moving. Been following much of what’s been happening today on activist David Mixner’s social media…he’s been working for around 50 years for this very day…it’s a great day for America and really reminds us that when the country gets it right….it continues, as Thomas Jefferson said it would, to be the great hope of the world. It’s true that we have a long way to go….in terms of making it this way for all people….all over the world.
