In his warm-up remarks just before the debate began, Bob Schieffer mentioned how much he missed Tim Russert. (*1) Then last night at the Al Smith dinner, Senator Obama also took a moment to remember Tim. I'm glad they did. I've truly missed Russert. He was having the time of his life during the long primary season. Oh, how he would have loved this post-convention campaign.
Tim, you're gone too soon.
*1: I watched the debates on C-Span, which covers all the intro stuff that takes place before the debate itself begins.
