    of clout over there now, but not enough to take on a deity.

    I would rather see Maddow continue on her mission of reaching out past the progressive base.  If she has to compromise a little bit to do it, that's not really a bad thing.

      check this out.

      In private, Welch was proud to have personally cultivated Tim Russert from a “lefty” to a responsible representative of GE interests. Welch sincerely believed that all liberals were phonies. He took great pleasure in “buying their leftist souls”, watching in satisfaction as former Democrats like Russert and MSNBC’s Chris Matthews eagerly discarded the baggage of their former progressive beliefs in exchange for cold hard GE cash. Russert was now an especially obedient and model employee in whom the company could take pride.

      i love rachel but russert's was complicit, pure and simple.
