Barack Obama might give Chris Matthews a thrill up his leg, but the "Hardball" host said Wednesday, "There’s nobody I like to bump into more and meet than Hillary Clinton."
"I get the biggest giggle out of meeting her," he gushed like a ten-year-old speaking of his first crush. "She is something else in person" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
CHRIS MATTHEWS: You know, I have to say personally on a personal basis there’s nobody I like to bump into more and meet than Hillary Clinton. I get the biggest giggle out of meeting her. She is something else in person. I say that to her worst enemies: meet her – you’ll be amazed. Anyway, thank you Joan Walsh and Matt Cooper. I got a little chuckle out of Joan with that one.
And me, Chris. And me.
