Cory Booker is the Right Leader for this Moment in History
By Steve Phillips
I am going to do everything I can to help elect Cory Booker the next President of the United States. Beyond his policy positions (which I largely support) and his electoral prospects against Trump (which are excellent), I am backing Booker because he is the best leader for this specific moment in U.S. history.
Supporting Cory does not mean I am opposing other Democratic candidates. I am a friend or fan of many of them and I will enthusiastically support the Democratic nominee in 2020. I just hope that Cory is that nominee. Here’s why:
America needs a leader who deeply understands this historical moment and has the ability to unite the country by inspiring people of all races to resume the work of building an inclusive, multiracial, economically just democracy.
