I am at a loss. I grew up watching Tim Russert, and his work helped shape my political views. He is one of the few journalists that truly remained objective, and had an amazing knack for making politics accessible to regular working folks like me. He had an uncanny sense, an innate ability to understand and predict the outcomes the rest of us simply couldn't fathom. He was a great family man and a good Catholic as well.
My heart and my prayers go out to his family. He was the best in the business.
Please watch this MSNBC link for a touching tribute to the life of Tim Russert.
A huge, huge loss for all of us. Thank you, Tim, and God bless.
