We’ll give MSNBC host Chris Matthews a break and leave the “thrill up his leg” quote alone. However, it was clear at his town hall with Hillary Clinton in Springfield, Ill., tonight that Matthews only had eyes for her; otherwise, he might have noticed the “town” who had attended under the impression that they’d have the opportunity to join in the conversation.

Matthews seems to have lost track of time, looking deep into Clinton’s eyes and reminiscing with her about the good old days of ’68.

If it seems we’re making the event seem a bit cozier than it was, take it from these people.

Um, better propose first.
