Senator Cory Booker makes shortlist of vice presidential picks to join Hillary Clinton’s ticket
Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is currently working on her shortlist of running mates, and she may very well tap a Black man to take with her all the way to the White House.
Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) is one of very few politicians being considered for Clinton’s vice president pick. If chosen, Booker would embark on a journey to make double history with the former Secretary of State: Clinton would become the first woman elected as president, and Booker would become the first Black man elected as vice president.
More interesting, Booker would also become the first unmarried vice president since 1949, and the first ever lifelong bachelor.
Booker, 47, is a former mayor of New Jersey and assumed his senate seat in 2013. He’s a strong contender for Clinton’s VP pick, not only because he’s a young and experienced politician, but also evokes a similar enthusiasm as the then-Senator Barack Obama before his historic election in 2008.
Though his name has been thrown in the hat, Booker seems to be playing it coy.
“You know what? I’m focused on being the best New Jersey Senator I can possibly be,” Booker said recently, “And I’m leaving a lot of that speculation for the ‘speculators’ and right now my focus is doing my job.”
Guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
