“I am deeply saddened by the death of Tim Russert.  My thoughts and prayers go out to his family during these incredibly difficult times.

“I had the great pleasure of knowing Tim.  He was a gentleman and a credit to his profession.  Tim was probably the best questioner on Sunday television and he was always prepared.  He was tough on everybody as he should be. His death is a great loss for the entire nation.  Tim will be greatly missed.”
