Politico reports that the MSNBC host Chris Matthews toured the Philadelphia region with Barack Obama this Saturday. Is he starting the anticipated 2010 bid for US Senate?

As you might remember, Matthews feels “thrill going up his leg” when he hears Obama speak. Maybe he hopes to inspire similar admiration in a few years.

It could be a difficult run for Matthews, as Arlen Specter (R) has a 59-29 approval rating according to Quinnipiac University. And Pennsylvania voters prefer Specter to Matthews 41-36 percent. But that is before Matthews has even announced his Senate bid, let alone started campaigning. Considering that, a five point lead for Specter could be easy for Matthews, an already well-known television personality, to overcome.
