The memory always goes first.
A slew of readers have just written in to tell me that Chris Matthews just made a big production on Hardball tonight about who Wes Clark voted for in 2000, and then promised to get to the bottom of it by asking Clark the question straight-out if he came on his show again. (I’m at one of my cafe haunts so I didn’t see it myself.)
Well, it shouldn’t be too hard to get to the bottom of this one.
From Hardball, September 17th …
MATTHEWS: Let me ask you, who you did you vote for in 2000 for president?
CLARK: I voted for Al Gore.
