Cory Booker no longer denying he's being vetted as Hillary Clinton's VP pick

CBS-New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker this weekend went from flatly denying he's under consideration to referring questions about vetting to the Clinton campaign. "I'm just referring questions about the vice presidency to the woman who is going to have to make this decision," he said on CNN Sunday. "You should talk to the Clinton campaign. What I do know is that on the Democratic side, there are many fabulous candidates--people that could be really strong vice presidential candidates." CNN's Brianna Keilar tried to get him to elaborate, saying: "That is not a no, sir. That is not a no."  One potential downside of choosing Booker is that his replacement would be appointed by
New Jersey's Republican governor, Chris Christie. Asked about the possibility that Christie could become Donald Trump's VP pick, Booker said no matter who Trump picks there's no "good partnership" to help him effectively lead.
