Chris Matthews Talks Hardball

croppedmatthews3.jpgBefore a packed crowd in the Nixon Library’s replica of the White House East Room, Chris Mathews gave an interesting lecture on Tuesday night and later signed copies of his new book Life’s a Campaign: What Politics Has Taught Me About Friendship, Rivalry, Reputation, and Success.

Always controversial, Matthews wasn’t reluctant to offer his opinion on issues ranging from presidential hopefuls to the current war in Iraq. When asked about Hillary Clinton’s chances for the presidency, he addressed her last debate performance.

She needs to changer her position on driver’s liscenses for illegal aliens. You can’t hold that position and win in a general election.

On the Republican side of the race, Matthews expressed his enthusiasm on the possibility of the nomination not being sealed until the convention in Minneapolis next year.

It’s going to be very exciting, we haven’t had a convention without a presumptive nominee since 1976.
