Cory Booker will be bored in the Senate

(New Jersey Sen. Frank Lautenberg announced he’s not running for re-election, creating a clearer path of Newark Mayor Cory Booker to take his place. (Star-Ledger))
Being a blue state, NJ’s Booker will likely win the Senate seat in 2014.
The more important question is why he would want to move to the US Senate after being a public executive used to giving orders, and having them carried out rather quickly.
The US Senate is still a slow, ponderous, gentleman’s club. Cory will be both frustrated and bored there.
