On MSNBC a few minutes ago, the longtime pundit said he thinks "the idealist has game tonight." (That Chris is so fly.) He quickly killed the enthusiasm of any Barack Obama supporter tuning in, however, when he added that Obama's resonance in Iowa was proof that the "McGovern, Paul Tsongas, Gary Hart and, yes, Howard Dean wing of the party" was alive and kicking.

Iowa Caucus: Matthews is Wild About Obama

Posted by Doug Perry January 03, 2008 15:43PM

Chris Matthews has just called the Iowa Democratic caucuses.

On MSNBC a few minutes ago, the longtime pundit said he thinks "the idealist has game tonight." (That Chris is so fly.)

He quickly killed the enthusiasm of any Barack Obama supporter tuning in, however, when he added that Obama's resonance in Iowa was proof that the "McGovern, Paul Tsongas, Gary Hart and, yes, Howard Dean wing of the party" was alive and kicking.

Matthews then gave his liveliest kicks to Hillary Clinton. If she loses in Iowa, he said, it's "very hard" for her to win the nomination. That's a mouthful when talking about such a well-funded and determined candidate, but he stuck to his guns, insisting voters are in an "anti-slick politician" mood and are looking for "someone who can deliver them from the rut we're in."

Dodd vows to filibuster Surveillance Act Date: October 27 2007 No: 1206 Dodd vows to filibuster Surveillance Act
Senator Chris Dodd vowed to filibuster the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act that would grant retroactive immunity to telecommunications companies that helped this administration violate the civil liberties of Americans. "It is time to say: No more. No more trampling on our Constitution. No more excusing those who violate the rule of law. These are fundamental, basic, eternal principles. They have been around, some of them, for as long as the Magna Carta. They are enduring. What they are not is temporary. And what we do not do in a time where our country is at risk is abandon them."

"People will say it's terrorism. But are there any terrorists in the world who can change the American way of life or our political system? No. Can they knock down a building? Yes. Can they kill somebody? Yes. But can they change us? No. Only we can change ourselves. So what is the great threat we are facing? I would approach this differently, in almost Marshall-like terms. What are the great opportunities out there - ones that we can take advantage of?" Read more.
