MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews talks about his new book, TIP AND THE GIPPER, a firsthand account of when two great political opponents served together for the benefit of the country. As a top aide to Speaker of the House Tip O’Neill, Matthews was an eyewitness to history. Together, the Speaker and the President forged compromises that shaped America’s future and became one of our most celebrated political pairings—the epitome of how ideological opposites can get things done.

Chris Matthews hosts “Hardball with Chris Matthews” and the syndicated weekly news program “The Chris Matthews Show.” He is the author of six bestselling books, including JACK KENNEDY: ELUSIVE HERO.
