You Will Be Missed Tim Russert

For those of you who don't know I am a political junkie. I have grown up watching Tim Russert. I stayed up many election nights with Tim waiting for him to make the "call". It is truly a devastating loss to all but especially his family. I only wish my future children could have grown up watching Tim do his thing.

In the words of Teddy Kennedy (in a eulogy to his nephew JFK Jr.) we only wish Tim would have "lived to comb gray hair.....he had every gift but length of years."

I can't wait to tell him my first hand account of Election Night 2008.......someday but not yet. We will miss you my friend.

Ugh. This loss is so tough. He was such a joy to watch, I guess because his joy was so infectious.

Wow, such nice heartfelt comments. I didn't watch his show often, but now I wish I had.
