It was a sad day when we learned of your death on TV news. Thank you for your brilliant career, especially all the evaluations and red/blue state possibilities during elections. You are missed.

Ironically, his biggest draw in audience every year was interviewing Rush Limbaugh. The two were friends. I miss Mr. Russert. Even though he was a leftist he was fair and balanced and treated people with respect.
