Chris Matthews: I Still Get 'The Same Thrill Up My Leg, All Over Me' From Obama Campaign Speech (VIDEO)

Chris Matthews still gets that thrill.

The MSNBC host, who infamously said that one of Barack Obama's campaign speeches sent a "thrill up his leg," reiterated that sentiment Tuesday on MSNBC while watching 2008 campaign footage.

"You know, I get the same thrill up my leg, all over me, every time I hear those words," he said. "I'm sorry, ladies and gentlemen, that's me. He's talking about my country, and nobody does it better."
