I have been watching "Meet the Press" for years and even had an affectionate nickname for Tim--"Big Head"--because he was really smart and, I have always suspected, had a huge brain.
It's very sad--he was a brilliant political journalist who really seemed grounded in reality. He brought passion and dedication to his work, and clearly loved politics. So often the political pundits on TV are idiots, but he was different. I appreciated his enthusiasm and energy, but most of all, he seemed fair, logical, well-informed, and always prepared to ask the tough questions. Especially in this election year, it's a real shame he won't be part of the hullabaloo and get to see how it all turns out. We'll miss you, Tim! Sundays just won't be the same.
