    I hope that the diary made it clear that I was more impressed by his delivery than his message. The message was OK, but as has been pointed out in other comments, he had certainly tailored his remarks to a college audience.

    I am closer to Jill Klein in political philosophy than any other major politician in the US. Despite that I remain a Democrat and happily voted for Bill Clinton and Obama. Booker is probably cut from the same cloth. He said he was more libertarian on social issues (he made a big deal about LGBT rights and trashed the War on Drugs). Some of that may have been for the audience but probably some is also generational.

    He may crash and burn due to hubris, but if not I expect that he will be a major player for a long time.
