Rachel Maddow: I'd Be A Bad Senator (VIDEO)

Rachel Maddow said Sunday on the "Meet The Press" Take Two web extra that she doesn't feel she'd be a good senator.

"I don't think I'd be a good Senator for so many reasons before we even get to policy," Maddow said in response to a viewer question. "I am not interested in doing that. I have great respect for people who choose to pursue their both ideological aims and what they want for the country by doing that, but I think I'd be horrible at it."

Maddow added that she believes the switch from media to politics hinges on one important question.

"It depends, I think, on whether or not you want your daily job to be participating in a big group decision with other legislators," she said. "I'm bad at that."
