    Cronkite was still an excellent host beyond his retirement from the anchor job.  He still had several decades inside of him that he essentially left on the table.

    Was Dan Rather a better anchor during the 1980s than Walter Cronkite would have been?  I highly doubt it.

    Dingell is good precisely because he has served the district so well for decades.  Liberals, moderates and even a lot of conservatives trust him as a straight shooter who places the interests of SE Michigan above all.

    A Dingell replacement really could be a lot more conservative on many issues than he is.  And his replacement will likely have more problems bridging divides among constituent groups.
