Somehow trying to spin the Wikileaks document dumps from the e-mail account of Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta as a positive, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews ruled on Thursday night that “what I found great about it from the Clinton side was the intelligence of the people inside” in their self-evaluation of their candidate’s messaging.

Teaming with Boston Globe reporter and guest Annie Linskey, the pair touted some of the e-mails as a “very affirming” “learning device” in how campaigns work (translation: they’re doing and saying the same things I’d be saying if I worked for Hillary).
