Matthews Celebrates Obama's Nomination as 'Magic Moment'
Just seconds before Nancy Pelosi acknowledged the nomination, by affirmation, of Barack Obama on Wednesday night, Chris Matthews cheered the organizers who were able to bring the "magic moment" to fruition.
Praising the negotiators who were able to bring the Hillary Clinton and Obama camps together on the nomination process, Matthews, during MSNBC's August 27, live coverage of the Democratic National Convention hailed the occasion:
CHRIS MATTHEWS: I think credit has to be given here for the negotiators. Cheryl Mills, the attorney Robert Barnett, a lot of people on both sides put together this very delicate negotiation that allowed this magic moment to occur.
