    Russert might have once been registered a Democrat. His incessant overrepresentation of Republicans and marginalization of Democrats makes that old registration entirely immaterial. If he "overcompensated" to the extent that he overrepresented Republicans and their interests in the public debate, his vestigal Democratic affiliation matters about as much as does Joe Lieberman's - who was by no mere coincidence a frequent and influential guest on Russert's show.

    When Russert grilled a candidate (or any other guest), he grilled them hard if they were a Democrat. He didn't grill Republicans. Which makes him typical Meet the Press material, but inadequate for a legitimate American political discourse.
