Wasserman Schultz on Hardball

West Broward Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz appeared this evening on Hardball, the Chris Matthews show on MSNBC. She was a Matthews favorite even before she revealed this weekend that she'd been diagnosed with breast cancer more than a year ago and underwent a double mastectomy as well as an operation to remove her ovaries, which were also at risk for cancer. "I knew she was gutsy," Matthews intoned. "I just didn't know how gutsy."

First, video of Matthews bestowing upon Wasserman Schultz a Hardball Award, along with a clip that makes a nice highlight reel of the congresswoman getting her "feisty" on during previous appearances on the show.

After the jump, video of Matthews' interview with Wasserman Schultz from this evening.
