    Once a week, or month, or special commentator or something.

    Wouldn't be too hard to bring him back to the channel as a freelancer without having him hanging around and becoming a management issue.

    Repubs started up the car, hit the throttle and sent it over the cliff, and now they're complaining that the black guy hasn't fixed it fast enough.

      He was a man of his time, the Bush years.  But as a journalist, as a TV persona, and as a critical thinker who is nonetheless civil and polite to every guest Rachel far outclasses her one-time mentor.  I am forever grateful to Keith O for promoting Rachel into the big time, but I found his own program increasingly strident and unpleasant in its final year on the air on MSNBC and frankly I just don't think about him anymore.  We needed him in the dark days of Bush.  But his time has passed.

      My two cents.  I respect Olbermann, but he was bombastic on the air and far too self-important.
