If you haven't guessed, I'm a political news junkie. One of the people who I have had a great respect for is Tim Russert. So many Sunday's I'd sit with my father just watching Tim fairly ask questions, poke and prod and get the answers most American's were looking for. I remember when Tim interviewed Hillary and she wouldn't answer directly if she was going to run for president. I also remember distinctly a show where he had James Carville and his wife Marry Matalin on, at the end he brought in their children.
However, the most distinct thing I remember was him saying "Florida, Florida, Florida" and wrote it on the white board (which is in the Smithsonian museum now) when it came down to what would decide the 2000 election. He was right about Florida and 90% of the time I found he was right on the dime about the other issues he'd talk about.
I'll miss Sunday mornings with Tim Russert. Tim, you will be missed.
