It's funny, the little moments that make huge differences in a politician's career. Take for example Newark, NJ mayor Cory Booker, as of late. All it took was one selfless act of impromptu fire rescue a month ago to gain the support of the entire Democratic Party.
The Republican National Committee is looking to capitalize on Newark Mayor Cory Booker’s (D) criticism of the Obama campaign's attack on Mitt Romney's record at Bain Capital, urging supporters to sign a petition saying they "stand with Cory."
"Yesterday New Jersey Mayor Cory Booker, a surrogate spokesman for the Obama campaign, called the president's attacks on the free market 'ridiculous,'" the petition reads. "That's right Mr. President, we aren't going to let you destroy free enterprise. Stand up for America. Stand up for job creators."
I think we can add one more name to ever-growing list of prospective Romney VP choices. It would certainly be more interesting than some.
And not nearly as silly as others.
