I awoke today with the same feeling of emptiness that escorted me into darkness last evening. I suspect that I am feeling the loss of a kindred spirit in a man with whom I shared a passion for politics and a strong belief in America’s ability to live up to the ideals of its founders.
Our collective journey as a nation has been defined by those rare voices of decency and integrity that could hold a mirror to American society without forgetting that they were also part of that reflection, voices that could ask the question without assuming that they already knew the answer, voices that could shepherd us through common crisis and voices that, with humor and good will, could inspire us to be a better people. Such was the voice, the soul and the life of Tim Russert.
The staff and management of American Public House Review extend our heartfelt condolences to the family, friends and colleagues of Mr. Russert. We thank God for his time with us, and we hope that this upcoming election will move us closer toward the realization of those ethical standards and principles in which he so firmly believed.
