  •  Maddow deserves a lot of credit (5+ / 0-)

    for MSNBC's rising numbers. In the presence of a journalist/pundit of her caliber and high standards it forces/compels/encourages everyone sharing the spotlight with her to raise their own level of analysis. You don't make shit up and push your own agenda when sitting at the same desk as Rachel Maddow. Leading by example matters and Maddow proves it.

    And hats off to Keith Olbermann for pushing so hard to get her the gig. We are forever in his debt and should be grateful for his foresight in opening some doors for Maddow. It really fits in with one of the themes of the convention. Maddow's success is due to her brilliance and a crack staff but she definitely had a little help getting where she is today a lot faster than otherwise may have been possible.
