College Hardball Tour with Chris Matthews


Keep your eyes and ears peeled, as I'll be in the audience for the taping of Hardball with Chris Matthews - with Special Guest John Edwards. Seems that Chris Matthews will be back from whatever vacation/illness kept him from doing the last tour stop.

Is John Edwards running for president? That's just one tough question Hardball host Chris Matthews will ask the former vice presidential nominee at the College Tour on Tuesday, Dec. 12, at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

The event will be held at Memorial Hall and this will be my first chance to visit since the renovations. Can't wait to see what it looks like and get a sense of the environment. The $64,000 question is, of course, will he announce. The later emails I received suggested the addition of Mrs. Elizabeth Edwards to the show, so hang around to catch her as well.

The show will air live at 5pm on MSNBC and the taped version will be on at 7pm.

I'll be the one in the dorky brown sweater with the full beard.

If I had known I was going to be sitting in a television audience, I would have ironed last night. : )

My guess, for what it is worth

is that he will announce tonight. If I'm wrong it will be much worse than wearing a dorky brown sweater.

Did he take the dorkey sweater off?

I see a man in a brown checked shirt, with a full beard, but he doesn't look the way I remember Robert looking when I met him in July. Oh well......

Robin Hayes lied. Nobody died, but thousands of folks lost their jobs.

Wrong again!

I was told he was going to announce. No, not by who you think. By someone who should know tho'. See, the dorkey brown sweater isn't so bad after all. Robert, I looked for you and I know what you look like. Maybe I was looking too hard for the sweater.

I had heard the same thing

I wonder if Kucinich's announcement earlier in the day changed his plans?

Or maybe it was the assinine way

Tweety was acting. Matthews at his worst.

Edwards is doing a great job

He isn't afraid to say things and he isn't afraid to correct Matthews and he does it without sounding all pissy like Bush does.

I think I saw Robert!

Hey.

I was in the front row, next to Sen. Edwards' parents. They were both so nice, reminded me of my kinfolk. You might have seen the back of my head, but I think that is it.

I taped it!

I'll watch it again. John seemed a bit tense at times and Matthews was off his game - almost seemed intimidated by Edwards. He was intimidated by Elizabeth Edwards. She's awesome.

I thought it was wonderful. I wish I had taped the CBS Sunday morning piece the other day. It was wonderful too.

Edwards could have done a better job

on the Foreign Policy quiz. There are a lot of potential candidates (clinton, Biden, and Gore come to mind) that would have nailed that ... or wouldn't have been asked the question in the first place.

Otherwise, he did fine.

I don't know.

He got them all but South Africa, and made a point of mentioning that he had spoken with all of them. When Clinton comes on I expect Matthews to quiz her on selling out Health Care, when Biden comes on, about selling out the Democratic working person with is MBNA bankruptcy bill.

I asked Biden about the bankruptcy bill personally

He satisfied most of my concerns, even if it did take him forever to say it all.

That bill, just like the Iraq resolution debate, demonstrates the importance of context and politics in elucidating genuine positions. But even the vote record didn't look too bad for Biden ... especially compared to Carper et al.

Memorial Hall was a great venue

when I went there to see Sufjan earlier this year ... I can't help but think that they borrowed from Davidson's excellent Duke Family Performance Hall, where we had Carville hosting the Southern Sports Awards last week.

Looks like a good audience to be in.

I wish I could have been there, but liked what I heard from John Edwards. He is a great choice for 2008.

Elizabeth is something too.

Chris Matthews leaves a little to be desired, I read he has been having health problems.

Robert

check your email. I sent you a question.

I'll check to see if my recording turned out. Our DVR has been doing some skipping lately. Did your sweater have some stripes on it?

Was Tweety as bad in person

as he was on camera. He asked the strangest questions and says the stupidest things.

he was worse...

on TV you can't hear the shocked laughter every time he made some off-color remark. His warm-up had much of the same. The whole thing started with him yelling, possibly in jest, for his producer to "stop touching me! Don't touch me like that! Just don't!"

It didn't seem like a joke to me, but the people with me thought he was joking. Still, there was this awkward silence in the place.

I missed the announcement and the show (damn you, employment!).

Sounds like it was fun.

mbair was banned from YouTube

One too many copyright violations, YouTube cancelled the account and mbair lost everything. There was a post or two today on Kos and OAC.

Ouch

Everyone thinks team Edwards was wonderful and Matthews was horrible.
