You Tube

Chris Matthews talks to Pat Buchanan and Heidi Harris about whether Rush Limbaugh has filled a leadership vacuum in the Republican party. Buchanan and Harris both say that by engaging him, President Obama has "elevated" Limbaugh and put him on a level with the President of the United States. They also both think it was a "huge mistake" and go on about how Rush and his gi-normous ego are enjoying all the attention he's getting.

I think that the opposite may be true. If the Republicans want to make Rush Limbaugh the face of their party, good luck to them. They're going to need it.
