Tim Russert was one of the biggest influences in American Political journalism.
Every Sunday morning was spent watching Meet the Press in my house. This is one of the biggest elections our Country will ever see and it is so sad to know we'll be going through this without him.
Tim spent a lot of time in Boston as his son attended Boston College. We would see him all the time attending Sox games and he just moved his father into a retirement home here. So very sad. My heart goes out to his family who were in Italy continuing there vacation Tim had just returned from when they heard the news.
Chris Matthews said it best "We lost our quarterback tonight".
