How will we make it through this year's election cycle?
I always enjoyed watching Tim Russert discuss the news but I grew to adore him during the 2000 election night roller coaster. Him and his white board. He seemed to me to be an insider, someone who knew and understood the players and the process in Washington and yet he remained cheerful and idealistic. And so I believed there was hope for the nation.
By all the accounts I am hearing he was a deeply faithful man. I am happy about for that. I will miss his point of view.
