On the July 31 edition of MSNBC's Hardball with Chris Matthews, guest host Mike Barnicle asked right-wing radio host Melanie Morgan, "[W]hat's your matchup for the biggest spouse in the race on either side, Bill Clinton?" to which Morgan replied, "Well, I think that [Sen.] Hillary's [Clinton (D-NY)] wife, Bill, is going to be a detriment, unfortunately, to Mrs. Clinton, because it's going to be a situation where, since he's still dating, it's obviously going to be a detraction, I think, from the race. So that's going to be problematic for Mrs. Clinton." Morgan added, "Plus, you know, you are going to have to hire private detectives to keep an eye on him, and so forth. And that's going to be a difficulty."

Later, Morgan asserted that Jeri Thompson, wife of possible Republican presidential candidate and former Sen. Fred Thompson (R-TN), "is aware of something that other women don't seem to get on the liberal side of the equation, that we are fighting a battle against terrorism that really has our very culture and our lives at stake." Morgan also claimed Jeri Thompson understands "that global warming is a hoax."

From the July 31 edition of MSNBC's Hardball with Chris Matthews:

BARNICLE: Melanie, let me ask you, what's your matchup for the biggest spouse in the race on either side, Bill Clinton?

MORGAN: Well, I think that Hillary's wife, Bill, is going to be a detriment, unfortunately, to Mrs. Clinton, because it's going to be a situation where, since he's still dating, it's obviously going to be a detraction, I think, from the race. So, that's going to be problematic for Mrs. Clinton.

Plus, you know, you are going to have to hire private detectives to keep an eye on him, and so forth. And that's going to be a difficulty.

On our side, though, I think that Jeri Thompson is going to be a spectacular asset to her husband, should he decide to get into the race. I think that Mrs. Thompson --

BARNICLE: Why -- why would she be an asset, because she is great-looking?

MORGAN: Because she is smart, accomplished. She's an attorney. She's gorgeous, that's true. That always helps.

Plus, she is aware of something that other women don't seem to get on the liberal side of the equation, that we are fighting a battle against terrorism that really has our very culture and our lives at stake.

And, so, I think that she will also understand that -- and she does understand the fact --

BARNICLE: Yes, but that -- that gets --

MORGAN: -- that global warming is a hoax and all the other tax issues that are very important.
