Newsbusters’ post on tonight’s panel discussion at Hardball (without Chris Matthews) says the panel agreed that Barack Obama played the race card when he accused John McCain of saying that Obama “doesn’t look like the other presidents on the currency:”
“But what makes the punditry panel’s unanimity notable is that no one would accuse them of being McCain backers, and what’s more, that they turned up on Hardball. Surely Chris Matthews, were he not on vacation, would have found one diehard to deny reality. But with Mike Barnicle guest-hosting, a consensus of truth-telling broke out.”
