Rush just called him one of the last "grown up Democrats". Agreed. RIP.

Tim Russert and David Broder were the only two left-leaning news analysts with even a hint of integrity. Russert has been sorely missed and Broder will be as well.

Broder was like Juan Williams, he was a lib that could tell the truth when cornered. I liked him.

I would love to see Broder in his prime and Moynihan comment on the state of the U.S. Budget. Bet there would be some pretty scathing comments about the current administration.

But alas, the Democrat Party has no one to fill their shoes. So we are stuck with socialists and marxists to pull the party further to the left.

Too bad. Often disagreed with Broder, but he was an honest man who expressed himself well. RIP

An old-school liberal and opponent one could respect- last of a breed.

Agreed. A moderate Dem, a dinosaur of a bygone era. Good thinker, good writer. RIP.

As a demonstration of how far left the Democrats have drifted, Broder -- a Democrat -- always seemed like a moderate Republican to me.

RIP, David.

This old warhorse should have been put out to pasture a long time ago. He hasn’t written anything worth reading in decades.

Wait a minute, I thought this was one of those prognosticators that would live forever. I thought it was a position where if someone died they put someone else in there to take over, like with Dear Abby.

David Broder was one on the better liberals who I agreed with from time to time.

RIP
