Tim Russert

Tim Russert was great at what he did and we will miss having his particular variety of analysis during this and upcoming political campaigns.  I used to wait for his reports on the Today Show the morning after a primary so I could know what just happened and what would happen next.  He would always put things into perspective in just a few sentences.  He wasn’t a star, just a regular guy who was in the perfect job and did it very very well.  Here is a recent clip of him playing his calm role, telling us what had just become true, when all the various spin doctors couldn’t or wouldn’t say it.  He knew his stuff, and we will miss him.
