Tom Brokaw reflects on 2008

Wednesday, December 24, 2008

2008 was a dynamic year of historic firsts, and who better to sum it up than one of America’s most trusted journalists. The 21-year veteran of NBC Nightly News joins John and Adaora to discuss the passing of his dear friend Tim Russert and why Barack Obama was the post-modern candidate in this year’s election.
"In Tim's case, he wished he'd spent more time at the office. He loved it so much."
