MSNBC Host Wants to Booze, Blubber With Boehner

Some journalists dream of peppering politicians with hardball queries. Others make a very comfortable living serving up nonconfrontational softballs.

MSNBC’s Alex Wagner just wants to plain bawl and booze it up with Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio).

The “NOW with Alex Wagner” host proposed a Merlot-and-tears party with Boehner last night on Conan O’Brien's show, saying the Speaker would be her dream guest. "I just want to have him on to have some Merlot and cry," she said.
