For John, BLUF: Mr Chris Matthews seems adrift. Nothing to see here; just move along.
So, Chris Matthews vs Mitt Romney. This is a pick you idiot. One quote: "We need Russia."
My conclusion is that "Prediction is very hard, especially about the future." Yes, Yogi Berra. That said, it is easy to mock those who utter opinions that are out of the mainstream and the utterer is seen as out of the mainstream, e.g., Gov Sarah Palin or Gov Mitt Romney.
