The StoneZONE broke the news last week the MSNBC's Chris Matthews was seriously mulling a challenge to Senator Arlen Specter as a Democrat in 2010. In the wake of a devastating story in the New York Times Magazine which depicts Matthews as a pompous, self important, sexist asshole, Matthews told the Philadelphia Inquirer in an interview that he is not going to run. In the meantime, Senator Specter's cancer has returned and he will be treated, but few believe that that will deter him from running and winning in 2010.
