    Luke Russert’s Thanksgiving

    From BuffaloNews.com:

      In his first Thanksgiving since the shocking death of his famous father, NBC News youth correspondent Luke Russert is following a family tradition.

      He and his mother, Maureen Orth, are scheduled to arrive in Buffalo on Thursday to be with his grandfather Tim Sr., “Big Russ,” who will turn 85 on Saturday; his father’s sister, Kathy Russert- Hughes; and other relatives.

      “We’re going to have a nice turkey dinner together,” Russert said. “Usually, it is our tradition to go to Buffalo.”

    Obama Sets Press Briefing Record

    From The Washington Times:

      In the 22 days since winning the White House, President-elect Barack Obama has taken 22 questions from reporters and has done two sit-down television interviews.

      The Democrat held his fourth press conference since Nov. 4 in Chicago Wednesday morning — his third in as many days — an unprecedented bit of access for reporters who have grown accustomed to President Bush’s infrequent moments taking questions and already surpassing the last four presidents-in-waiting.

      Mr. Obama has beat his four predecessors in number of post-election, pre-inauguration press conferences, and is inheriting a more troubled nation than any of those men. With one Cabinet post officially named, he is working at a faster clip than former President Bill Clinton.

    Lynn Sweet: The New David Broder

    From The Daily Beast’s “Five Ways Obama Has Already Changed Washington” (penned by Ana Marie Cox):

      3. The press corps has a new dean.

      David Broder is, of course, Dean Emerita, but the Chicago Sun-Times’ Lynn Sweet will probably taking over the daily duties. What do those entail? The unofficial position is part institutional memory, part guardian of journalistic purity: the walking, talking conscience of the press corps, there to remind them that he’s just a president. Sweet, already a well-regarded reporter and infamous for her acerbic personality, has been covering Obama for years and never really swooned for him as so many of her colleagues did.

    Update: Chris Matthews’ Potential Senate Run

    From the LATimes:

      The Northeast’s dwindling cast of Senate Republicans has Democrats circling Arlen Specter’s seat in Pennsylvania, convinced the party is well-positioned to make a competitive race out of the 2010 election.

      Leading the pack of prospects — at least in celebrity — is Chris Matthews, the MSNBC “Hardball” host and a former Capitol Hill Democratic staffer. The Philadelphia native has been toying with a run for months, and this week he sat down with state Democrats to discuss the prospect of taking on the five-term GOP senator. …

      Matthews, 62, who didn’t respond to a request for comment, has dismissed questions about a run in recent months as he lays the groundwork behind the scenes. His contract with MSNBC expires in June.
