FishBowlDC: Tim Russert’s son, Luke, is scheduled to appear on NBC’s ‘Today’ show program tomorrow morning (sometime between 7 and 7:30 a.m.) to discuss his father’s passing

You’ll recall that Luke vacationed in Italy with his father and mother (Vanity Fair writer Maureen Orth) just days before Tim’s death from a heart attack Friday. The vacation was, in part, a celebration of Luke’s graduation from Boston College.

As much of the coverage of Russert’s passing and legacy has indicated, Luke and his father shared a close and treasured father-son relationship.

‘Today’ show host Matt Lauer will conduct the interview via satellite, with Luke appearing from Washington, D.C.

Politico: One week into the general election, the polls show a dead heat. But many presidential scholars doubt that John McCain stands much of a chance, if any.

Historians belonging to both parties offered a litany of historical comparisons that give little hope to the Republican. Several saw Barack Obama’s prospects as the most promising for a Democrat since Roosevelt trounced Hoover in 1932.

“This should be an overwhelming Democratic victory,” said Allan Lichtman, an American University presidential historian who ran in a Maryland Democratic senatorial primary in 2006. Lichtman, whose forecasting model has correctly predicted the last six presidential popular vote winners, predicts that this year, “Republicans face what have always been insurmountable historical odds.” His system gives McCain a score on par with Jimmy Carter’s in 1980.

McCain in a Town Hall today “I will not impose a litmus test on any nominee.”

McCain in 2000: “Somewhat surprisingly, McCain had the support of Gary Bauer, the social conservative, who had dropped out of the race by that time. ‘I wanted a commitment from either George Bush or John McCain that if elected he would appoint pro-life judges to the Supreme Court,’ Bauer told me. ‘Bush said he had no litmus test, and his judges would be strict constructionists. But McCain, in private, assured me he would appoint pro-life judges.'” [New Yorker, 5/30/05]

I’d hoped he’d do something like this. Iowa is becoming the next Katrina. Smart for the Obama Campaign to be doing this.
