Matthews for Dean?

Yeah, I don't really buy it, but someone over in a BFA thread reported that Chris Matthews was talking up Dean in a speech he gave at Brown.
I just got back from a lecture at Brown University by Hardball host Chris Matthews. And the amazing news: he said of all the democratic candidates, he likes Dean the best! He then proceeded to do a great imitation of Dean rolling up his sleeves and leaning forward on the podium and denouncing the war. He praised Dean's appeal to the average American, as a straight-talking, GUTSY, man who is also a doctor. And he berated Gephardt for attacking Dean on any health care related issue... "He's a doctor! A doctor! All he has to do is talk about how many lives he's saved in the middle of the night. Gephardt has never even prescribed Aspirin for someone. Stop attacking him on health care. He's a doctor!"
This is probably just so he can knock Dean down later, but it's entertaining, nonetheless.
