COMMENTS: Russert Inside-the-Beltway
NBC rounded out its extended coverage of its DC chief by soliciting remembrances from Washington's elite: Albert Hunt of Bloomberg News on his love of family, Sally Quinn of Washington Post on his religious devotion, Bob Woodward of Washington Post on his living in the present, Mike Barnicle of MSNBC on his sense of joy--and Ethel Kennedy: "He will be right at home in heaven," declared RFK's widow.
As ABC anchor Charles Gibson put it: "He just loved politics. His enthusiasm was infectious…Tim Russert was robust, larger than life. He filled a room--which makes his sudden death hard to comprehend."
