Today, Adam Martin took a look at Newark Mayor Cory Booker's future policial ambitions. A name familiar to anyone who's hunted for an apartment in the last few years turned up in the comments section. 

Craig Newmark, or at least a commenter using a photo of the Craigslist founder as an avatar, had this to say about Cory Booker: 

I've worked just a little with Cory, and it turns out some of my relatives back in NJ have done so.

We're all convinced he got what it takes to be a big success, and will make US politics better.

Craig, if that's you, thanks for reading the Wire! (If it isn't, let us know.) And we're sure Booker would be glad to have your support in his rumored bid for the Senate.
