CHRIS MATTHEWS: How does this president regain his historic, heroic stature which he had? I'm not saying he was ever super popular with more than 50-some-percent of the country, but he was seen as a hero to a lot of people. I think he's lost that for a while and I'm trying to figure out how does he champion the election and re-election of his friends in the Senate especially in the south in red states, and that's what we're talking about here, even in the case of Kentucky, Georgia, Louisiana, Arkansas, North Carolina, all red states. How does he go down there? Like today he is visiting North Carolina and talked about employment. And Kay Hagan says she is in Washington, too busy to join him. It's only an hour ride in a plane.
