Newark Mayor Cory Booker cheers as the Democrats present their platform during the convention Tuesday. "This platform is a clear choice" between inclusion or exclusion, Booker said according to a transcript of his convention speech from Politico. "We choose forward. We choose inclusion." He included the platform's backing of marriage equality among America's "most fundamental national aspiration — that no matter who you are, no matter what your color, creed, how you choose to pray or who you choose to love, that if you are an American — first generation or fifth — one who is willing to work hard, play by the rules and apply your God-given talents — that you should be able to find a job that pays the bills."
