Savannah Guthrie may be happy in her day job, but there were a sizable number of people on Sunday who seemed that the "Today" host would be very welcome as the moderator of "Meet the Press."
Guthrie had spirited, aggressive conversations with Sen. Rand Paul and Treasury Secretary Jack Lew, and the praise started pouring in on Twitter. A sampling:
Kudos (whatever they are) to @SavannahGuthrie for her "Meet the Press" performance this Sunday. Thought she did awfully well.

Approximate improvement in the questioning with Savannah Guthrie substituting for David Gregory on @meetthepress: 100 percent.

Totally surprised by Savannah Guthrie's tough interviews with Jack Lew + Rand Paul on #MTP this am. Curious to see more of her in that role.

#MTP Savannah Guthrie should be the new host. These electeds and bureaucrats can't spin the issue while facing her graceful wit.
