Russert is the best.  Hands down.  He's one of the few that ever says 
something that I didn't already know.

Of the cable TV arguing class, I like Matthews best.  Both Matthews and 
Russert, ex-Democrat staffers, are great because they do not let partisan 
allegiances get in the way of honest analysis.

Greenfield's good, though he tries too hard to be clever.  I liked him better 
as a reporter for Nightline.  I like Stephanopolos much more than I ever 
thought I would.  He will be better with all his friends out of office.
