Joe Klein’s fine Russert tribute, linked below, also underscores something that we’ll be missing without Tim Russert: a major, respected media figure who understands the sensibilities of people who are not affluent, college-educated, liberal voters even if he was at the time of his death an affluent, college-educated liberal himself. Unlike Klein, Russert instinctively understood that the Clintons were appalling despite his Democratic sympathies. And Russert had a better read on what middle American voters, including the blue-collar Democrats who voted for Hillary in huge numbers in places like Pennsylvania and Kentucky, were asking about Obama than Klein, who responds in the purely moralistic terms of a typical liberal.
