In a hot mic conversation with MSNBC host Chris Matthews, bewildered Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton wondered about Gov. Chris Christie’s motivations for endorsing billionaire real estate tycoon Donald Trump.

Clinton didn’t object, which also intrigues because Booker occupies most short lists of possible Clinton vice prez choices.
