How about a disadvantaged neighborhood like Anacostia, some have suggested. On day No. 1, Booker revealed he has bigger plans. During the former Newark mayor's ceremonial swearing-in Thursday in the old senate chamber, Whispers overheard him asking Vice President Joe Biden for a place to crash, getting big laughs from the veep.

NowThis News captured the aftermath in which Booker admitted the plea didn't go as well as he planned. "I don't know where I live," Booker told reporters. "I put a really bad pitch in to the vice president if I could just crash in a spare room that he had."

Until he finds a Washington outpost, Booker said New Jersey will remain his home. "I live now and will continue to live in Newark, New Jersey."
