One can only imagine the sound, something like air being let out of a helium balloon, should Hillary Rodham Clinton announce in the beginning of 2015 that she isn't running for president. Most can't for a moment fathom that scenario playing out.
For Todd and NBC to make something of Meet The Press, they have to ditch the SOSO attitude: Same Old, Same Old. They have to try shake things up, bringing back some old ways while integrating the new.
All weather talk is good talk as far as I am concerned. It is also human talk. Checking the forecast on multiple platforms is an American pastime, but staying around to discuss the weather on any platform is a different thing altogether.
Let's face it: most of us don't like David Gregory. He's the smug brat we always hated in high school. No wonder so many of us are salivating at rumors that NBC may relieve the grey-haired wonder boy from his Meet the Press duties.
I don't particularly remember saying goodbye to Tim. Once he'd pried Moynihan out of the editor's corner office, he had no reason to linger. Our lives would go on, we'd never share another word, let alone an adventure.

Limited press access to the president and White House events is an important issue that goes right to the heart of America's democratic principles.
