“Today you are my star. My harbinger of hope. This country is getting better and better.” Cory Booker is ready to rejoice. “The United States is better because of you.” Don’t let anyone steal your joy seeing this amazingly qualified, dignified judge ascend to SCOTUS.

He says Russia can still avoid war through diplomacy. He cites a meeting next week between Secretary of State Blinken and Lavrov unless Russia attacks before that. “Russia has a choice between war and all the suffering it will bring, or diplomacy.”
