Cory Booker prepares to collect on a debt

By Richard K. Barry

Gee, hate to be cynical, but when Newark Mayor Cory Booker sent a message to the Obama campaign that it just wasn't right to pick on the deep-pocketed guys on Wall Street and at Bain Capital, I, and others, had some idea what might be going on. And, by golly, we were right. Last Thursday, Booker made it official. He's eyeing state-wide office, maybe governor or the Senate.

Word is, he formed a federal PAC last month. And what do you need for a PAC? Why, money. And who has money? Well, you know.

Look, I get it. You need lots of resources to win campaigns in that New York-New Jersey-Connecticut tri-state area. But Booker might have mentioned to Obama's team he was going to turn on them, or maybe that was the whole point, to show he's his own man.

Politics is not for anyone with a weak stomach. Wanna see Booker sell his soul again?
