[Ed. – Lame. There’s really only one choice with that one: run with it and turn it into your own self-branding joke, something that works to your advantage.  Under no circumstances do you walk it back.  Not, let us say, What Spartacus Would Do.]

Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) told The Hill Thursday that he did not intend to compare himself to Spartacus during last week’s Supreme Court confirmation hearings — a moment that put him squarely in the political spotlight but also led to some mockery.

Booker, who is widely seen as preparing for a White House run in 2020, says he has no regrets about his “Spartacus moment.”

“It doesn’t take away from the larger point and, again, all of this is about the larger point. We have documents that have been hidden from the public, that shouldn’t have been hidden from the public,” Booker said Thursday of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation proceedings.
