As per DeeDee and Rusty's request, Rachel Maddow grills former Home Land Securtiy Secretary Tom Ridge.
I'm only a little over 7 min into the first clip, and he is STAMMERIN' HARD!

Tom Ridge is about to go on Hardball to shill his book. It will be interesting to see how Matthews does in comparison to Maddow's success yesterday. Will he try to out Mathews himself? That would be ugly.

This is an interesting little tidbit
