A recent John McCain web video highlights one of the more candid confessions of the presidential campaign season. The video quotes NBC News correspondent Lee Cowan describing how he felt when NBC assigned him to cover Barack Obama: "I must confess my knees quaked a bit."
If Cowan's knees quaked, MSNBC correspondent Chris Matthews' leg trembled. The online spot shows Matthews telling a fellow reporter about listening to an Obama speech: "I felt this thrill going up my leg."
