Booker worries about anything that will threaten the legitimacy of the process within the Democratic Party.

Cory Booker: Yes. Yes, even though I am trying to become a superdelegate--I am just a delegate now. I want to get my cake for crying out loud. I want to get my superpowers. Yeah, of course I am. I worry about anything that is gonna be perceived to threaten the legitimacy of the process within our party. And it'll be problematic but at the end of the day there are the Democratic voters who become cynical about the process because they believe it wasn't fair. And that's a real legitimate worry. But we are far away from that, and I think that the leadership within Democratic Party understands that as well. And I have faith that the right will prevail, and I am also am, thank God, a part of the process now, that I can at least let my voice be heard as we hopefully go to that end.
