In Memoriam: A Dedication to Tim Russert
Whew, this presidential election has been a whirlwind of twists and turns. From Hillary losing to Obama, to McCain picking Sarah Palin as his running mate, and all of the other events in between. One event, though, especially sticks out in my mind, and that is the death of Tim Russert. A lot had already happened with the presidential election when Russert's sudden passing in June at the age of 58. Sometimes I wonder what he would have thought of all of this. While it appears that Russert supported Obama, it is a shame he did not live to see this historic election come to pass. I'd like to think, though, that Russert is smiling down at all of this chaos and relishing every minute of it.
