Does he or doesn't he? Chris Matthews mulls Senate seat vs. TV chair
(UPDATE: Nevermind. On Jan. 7, Matthews told his staff he'd decided against joining the Pennsylvania Senate race. Details here.)
Nice to be in demand both onscreen and maybe off.
He's in talks to possibly extend his contract over at MSNBC while talking to himself about maybe jumping into politics again, this time not as a congressional aide but as a senator.
According to The Times' vigilant Matea Gold over on Show Tracker, NBC execs are confident the blond blabber will stick with TV ratings over electoral ones.
But they'd still like an answer soon.
