MEDIA Who's Long-Winded Enough To Replace Chris Matthews

As rumors of Chris Matthews' senate run become less exaggerated, he's reportedly being advised to quit MSNBC sooner than later. His contract expires next June, but he may step down much earlier.

This is bittersweet. We love the idea of Chris Matthews being a Senator, but only if he can be interviewed on TV by Chris Matthews. Politics just won't be the same if we can't hear Matthews' exasperated bellowing on our TV every night. Who is bloated enough, messy-haired enough, and sufficiently winded enough to take over his show? Finding a replacement for Chris will be tough, but we've come up with some ideas.
