Tim Russert, 1950 – 2008

NBC News and MSNBC powerhouse Tim Russert is gone.

I'm a pretty hardcore political TV junkie, so I'm a little stunned right now.

As the tributes tonight made clear, Tim Russert was much more than a journalist who relished getting to the bottom of a political question. He was devoted to his family and his home town, and he was a friend and mentor to his co-workers. He's a man I would've loved to meet.
