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.
