When polls go low, Cory Booker goes Michelle.
“I am just grateful to be with someone that I respect and love and admire so much…that is brilliant and kind and caring and loving,” Rosario Dawson told reporters for TMZ at Reagan National Airport in D.C.
Yesterday, the actress and co-founder of Voto Latino, confirmed rumors that have been swirling about the couple since January. A month after the U.S. Senator from New Jersey, Cory Booker, announced his candidacy for president.
With an unprecedented number of Democratic hopefuls, reports show Booker struggling to keep pace. Many attribute the lag in polls to his marital status, claiming being a bachelor could cost the Ivy League-educated, Rhodes scholar his shot at the presidency. Historically, there have only been two single U.S. presidents: James Buchanan, our 15th president; and Grover Cleveland, the 22nd.
Enter: Dawson. The Afro-Cuban and Puerto Rican activist who Prince once called the “voice of a generation” could be just the Michelle to Cory’s Obama we’d all like to see grace the White House once again.
No one could be a bigger proponent of this plan than Booker himself. While being interviewed for talk radio morning show the Breakfast Club, Booker declared, “I got a boo.” Although he would not say who at the time, he did confidently assert what a “nice” First Lady she would be.
I couldn’t agree more, CB. I guess you got my Voto Latino.
