Correction: April 20, 2017

In my March 21, 2017 post about Martin O'Malley, "Martin O'Malley: Good News, Bad News," I mentioned Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey and called him "the Senate's only black Democrat."  Not true, at least not any more; the Senate has another black Democrat, Kamala Harris of California, who took over Barbara Boxer's seat in January 2017.  And, like Booker, she's being talked about for the Presidency in 2020, and she's being called the female Barack Obama - because, like Obama in 2008, she would be competing for the Presidency four years into her first Senate term.   
The error, which I obviously regret, has been corrected.
