If you were bemoaning the fact there just wasn't enough sex in the presidential race to make it interesting there was this bit of absurdity from a press conference at Nashua North High School in New Hampshire as Hillary called out Chris Matthews of MSNBC over his obsession with her. It all began innocently enough as Matthews pressed her on the plan to bring U.S troops home from Iraq and the difference from her competitors. Mrs Clinton said she'd be "responsible about it", which didn't satisfy the dogged Mr Matthews:

Matthews: "No, you tell us the difference!"

Clinton: "I'm not on your show, I'm just answering your question."

Matthews: "Please come on the show."

Clinton: "Yeah, right."

Matthews: "Is that an answer?"

Clinton: "You know, I don't know what to do with men who are obsessed with me. Honestly, I've never understood it."

Later, Sen. Clinton walked over to Matthews. He pinched her cheek. She grazed his with her hand and said in a mother-to-child tone, "oh, Christopher. Baby." Matthews mumbled, "it's not an obsession."
