    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.
