Cory Booker for U.S. Senate

A rumor making the rounds over the last 48 hours is that former Newark Councilman Cory Booker is under consideration for an appointment to the United States Senate seat. Several Democratic insiders say the scenario makes sense: Jon Corzine makes history by appointing the state’s first African American United States Senator — a 36-year-old reformer and Rhodes Scholar — and maybe helps Sharpe James avoid a rematch with Booker in the 2006 race for Mayor.
