The whiteboard he used on election night 2000 (not the one above) is now a part of the Smithsonian.
Tim Russert has been a staple of our Sunday mornings for years. He is someone for which I had a great deal of respect. Not only was he very, very good at his job, but it was obvious that he loved it and looked forward to it everyday. His enthusiasm was infectious. May we all be so lucky.
R.I.P. Tim Russert, you were a huge inspiration.
