: Exchange on CNN:
: Anderson Cooper: Did he (Obama) tell you in that phone conversation, that you had privately with him, about how he plans to do that? How he plans to reach out? How he plans to unify?
: Donna Brazile: Of course he's told everyone that he plans to sit down with Senator Clinton at the right time."
: Cooper: I'm looking for something he hasn't told anyone else.just you.
: Brazile: Anderson, you're not my boo.
: [More laughter]
: Cooper: I wanna be your boo. [pause and laughter] I don't really even know what that means.
: [Brazile looks at her watch]
: Brazile: Anderson, are we still on TV?
: Cooper: Yes we are
: Brazile: Well, I think I better watch my words
: Cooper: I'm not sure that means exactly..someone can explain it to me later.
The Urban Dictionary comes to the rescue. It means what you thought it meant.
1. Boyfriend or girlfriend
2. Word used to scare people
1. Can you handle me? If you can't you ain't gonna be my boo.
boo is a term that is derived from the French word "beau" meaning beautiful. In 18th century England it meant an admirer, usually male. It made it's way into Afro-Caribean language perhaps through the French colonisation of some Caribean islands.
Now meaning girl or boyfriend
"this is what I'm saying boo, it's all about you"
pet name: your hunny,sweety,baby.
I love you boo.
