But c'mon -- he's so inspirational!

I'm not a very big Chris Matthews fan, but kudos to him for this (my emphasis):

MSNBC's Chris Matthews: "You are a big Barack supporter, right, Senator?"

State Sen. Watson: "I am. Yes, I am."

Matthews: "Well, name some of his legislative accomplishments. No, Senator, I want you to name some of Barack Obama's legislative accomplishments tonight if you can."

State Sen. Watson: "Well, you know, what I will talk about is more about what he is offering the American people right now."

Matthews: "No. No. What has he accomplished, sir? You say you support him. Sir, you have to give me his accomplishments. You've supported him for president. You are on national television. Name his legislative accomplishments, Barack Obama, sir."

State Sen. Watson: "Well, I'm not going to be able to name you specific items of legislative accomplishments."

Matthews: "Can you name any? Can you name anything he's accomplished as a Congressman?"

State Sen. Watson: "No, I'm not going to be able to do that tonight."

Matthews: "Well, that is a problem isn't it?"

One would think it is. Wonder why it's not?

UPDATE: Here's the video. It ain't pretty.

Sad. Very sad. People are following his 'words' only with no accomplishments at all legislatively. I'll give him this, he does give a good speech (it is the same one over and over and over and over...)but there is absolutely no meat or substance at all. Zero. Zilch. And he is going to represent the democratic party and possibly be our next president. Both are scary thoughts.

That was particularly interesting. How is it that a man with so little to offer but his hope for the future, how is it that he is about to become the presidential nominee for the Dem. party?
