Maybe it’s her mushy baby food book?

As of late, MSNBC’s Chief Washington Correspondent Norah O’Donnell is getting a press boost. The most recent issue of Washingtonian splashes her on the cover in a story about stress. The story mentions her gratitude for her au pair and nanny. It also allows a reader to take a stress quiz. On Sunday, MSNBC “Hardball” host Chris Matthews complimented her during his Sunday morning NBC program. The remark was rapid (it is Matthews) and practically under his breath at the close of the show.

“Thanks for sitting in,” he said glancing over to O’Donnell, who was seated to his immediate right. “Everyone loved you last week.”

She smiled in response.
