35. i agree somewhat, disagree somewhat
i would completely agree the way Chris Matthews is selling his book on his TV show is shameless, and I find it embarrassing to watch this experienced, respected journalist selling himself like a prostitute. It puts a stain on his reputation and everything he does. He should at least wait for the end of the show, but he introduced this book as the 2nd topic on his show, as if writing a book about a president from the 1960's was breaking news. Furthermore, he behaves way to sentimentally about it, as if JFK was his father. He pierces his lips and gets a tear in his eye.

One thing though that I somewhat agreed with the contrast between JFK and Obama, although JFK was not as principled as many like to make him out to be. On the other hand, I really grow weary of these comparisons between Obama and former presidents. I actually think Obama would be smart to stop looking to dead presidents for advice.
