Chris Matthews: 'If I Were Obama I'd Marry' Bill Clinton

MSNBC's Chris Matthews sure doesn't have a problem expressing his affection for men on national television.

After showing a new campaign ad former President Bill Clinton just completed for the current White House resident, the Hardball host actually said, "If I were Barack Obama, I'd marry that guy" (video follows with commentary):

Makes you wonder how Mrs. Matthews feels about her husband talking this way on national television.

One moment he's telling viewers how listening to Obama gives him a thrill up his leg. The next he's saying he'd marry Bill Clinton.

Regardless of her feelings on the subject, exactly what do the folks at Comcast, General Electric, and NBC think about such gushing sentiments being expressed by one of their anchors in an election year?

Are there any journalistic standards left at this network?
