Senator Cory Booker, Democrat of New Jersey, sat down with the Big Red Car in Zilker Park in Austin By God Texas along the banks of the dammed Colorado River known as Town Lake or Lady Bird Lake for a free ranging interview about his Senatorial career and his decision to run for President of the United States.
“Welcome to Austin, Senator. Have you ever been here before?”
“Yes, but I can’t remember when. What a lovely city. Not to be critical, but I think you need a good washing. Sorry.”
“Well, I actually need a good paint job, if the truth were known. But, we’re here to talk about you and your decision to run for President. Where would you like to start?”
Booker cleared his throat, turned a powerful profile to the skyline and said, “Let’s begin with my upbringing.”
