Cory Booker Sworn in to U.S. Senate: VIDEO


Newark mayor Cory Booker was sworn in to the U.S. Senate this morning by Vice President Joe Biden, bringing the Senate chamber to its feet. Booker won a special election earlier this month to fill the seat of the late Senator Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ).

  2. Awesome. It is an embarrassment that we only have one black Senator, but wonderful that we has such a good one.

  3. Booker is the second black senator currently serving, after Tim Scott.

  4. Love Cory Booker. Also glad he won the "special" election months ahead of the NJ gubernatorial election because Christie didn't want to have his margins narrowed if
    people voted straight Democratic ticket.

  5. Why wasn't my comment about Senator Booker posted? (pout) Was it because I mentioned his big giant buns? Was that so disrespectful? Big and juicy!!!

    I wasn't being disrespectful. I like Harry Reid too. He'll kick a Republican ass with one arm tied behind his back.
