NBC's newly minted Chief White House Correspondent Chuck Todd got to ask his first question at a presidential press conference today and Chris Matthews was very excited for him. Matthews gushed over the familiarity with which Obama treated Todd, saying he was "very impressed." Todd demured, cautioning "who knows what kind of relationship it really is or not, and who knows what kind of relationship it's going to be in the next couple of years."
After discussing Obama's presser, Matthews sent Todd off with a fond "okay, Chief White House Correspondent for NBC News Chuck Todd, who just lost his virginity I think it's fair to say out there." Todd grinned helplessly, telling Matthews "you're killing me with that YouTube moment. I think Jon Stewart just got his clip for the night."
