MATTHEWS: I think he made a mistake tonight about cable television. I think there are a lot of people — at our network, especially — who hoped and in fact shared his hope with regard to the end of racial division and the need for continuing hope for that aspiration and not at all benefited from it. And also bout bipartisanship, I think a lot of us believe we have to work together better, and he and his Republican opponents have got to sit down and cut some deals. I don’t think it’s fair to say everybody benefits from division, I think he’s made a mistake on that. And I don’t think he watches much cable television; that’s his call.
