Matthews: “I Want To Do Everything I Can To Make This…New Presidency Work”

matthews_11-6b.jpgChris Matthews appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe this morning to discuss Rahm Emanuel‘s decision to announce he has not yet accepted President-Elect Barack Obama‘s offer for White House Chief of Staff and other Obama-related stories.

But after some questioning by co-host Joe Scarborough, Matthews said, “I want to do everything I can to make this thing work, this new presidency work.”

“Your job as a journalist is to make this presidency work?” asked Scarborough.
