Cory Booker is like a super hero ripped straight out of the comic books. And not just for this incident. Guy is awesome.

The more I hear about Booker, the more I like him. I had the chance to meet him a few times before he was running for mayor, and when he first got elected, and he really seems like a pretty sincere guy who truly wants to bring change and improvement. I just hope the political machine doesn't completely taint him as time goes on.

Absolutely amazing. How many people would actually run into a burning building to save someone? He's a true hero.

He is totally awesome - so impressive- I just wish he could have more success in turning Newark around. I mean that sincerely.

Read about this earlier this morning. Once again immensely impressed by the actions of this man, I truly look up to him. Nice to see an alumni of my high school actually do something amazing that actually counts as amazing (as opposed to being an aged frat bro in Hoboken). Some may worry about politics getting the best of him, but really, I think if that were going to happen, it would have by now.

Absolutely! He seems to have more success as a firefighter than as a politician and leader. Perhaps he missed his true calling.
