Booker on Outs with Obama after TV Gaffe

Booker had been angling for the housing secretary gig in a second Obama term, according to sources in the administration and close to the mayor. The job was certainly a possibility, given Bookerâ€™s work in New Jerseyâ€™s biggest city, according to administration and Democratic Party sources.
