Hardball

Nutter went on Hardball with Chris Matthews last night for what appeared to mostly be a boring nice-fest. Matthews, as we all know, is a Philly native and seemed to be pretty taken with the new mayor.

Nutter did defend his endorsement of Hillary Clinton for president, saying: "People have a right to be for who they want to be for. This is the United States of America and it`s not an automatic."

We haven't figure out how to embed video yet, but you can watch some of the show here. (credit to the 700 Level...)

Update: We just heard that after Nutter appeared on Hardball, Steven A. Smith -- of Inquirer and ESPN fame -- was featured in a political roundtable. Since when did that guy become an authority on presidential politics?
