MSNBC's Chris Matthews promotes Kennedy book in Barrington

PROVIDENCE, RI – More than a thousand fans showed up to Barrington Books this weekend to meet political talk show host Chris Matthews. The crowd was so big that an empty store was used to hold people waiting to meet him.

Matthews was in Rhode Island promoting his book "Jack Kennedy Elusive Hero." Rhode Island Public Radio's Scott MacKay squeezed his way through the crowd and sat down next to Matthews as he signed books and talked about the Kennedy presidency.
