Sadly, there is no replacement.
Tim Russert, as far as I'm concerned, was the leading political journalist of our time. He was warm and friendly, with a wonderful sense of humor, yet he had no problem asking the hard questions of even the most powerful politician. He could hold his own among any well-informed political analyst or newscaster. The political world seems a lesser place in his absence.
We'll always remember,
If it's Sunday, it's "Meet the Press."
