I enjoy and respect Chris Matthews, I have watched him occasionally for years. He is a Democrat that loves his party, but he wants it to be a better party. I respect him because he will point out the flaws in his own party. The reason he does so is because he wants it to be the best party it can be.
The other night he looked straight into the camera and said that the Democrats should not rejoice, because Donald Trump will be the next president. It was a powerful statement. Chris gets it.
