This is Cory Booker. He's the mayor of Newark, NJ.
He's passionate and eloquent, as in this moving, spontaneous answer to a question on marriage equality, but also daily on his Facebook and Twitter feeds. Since he became a city councilman, he's moved from the suburbs to various notorious low-income housing projects. He's reduced his city's crime rate, increased affordable housing and, after meeting Mark Zuckerberg at a dinner, convinced him to donate $100M to the Newark school system. He has over a million Twitter followers (four times Newark's population) – and has been known to personally go shovel people's driveways in snow storms after being alerted on Twitter.
So what did he do yesterday? Oh, he just carried a trapped neighbor out of a burning house, suffering second-degree burns and smoke inhalation in the process.
