The final event of the first day was “Insights and Analysis: Leading National Political Reporters Discuss the Campaign” panel. And yes, all panel’s names were also long descriptions. It was, after all “ELECTION 2008: Obama vs. McCain: What Happened and What Comes Next?” conference that we will call EOVMWHAWCNCon for short.
You can watch all the panels here.
During the Q&A the question was floated who would be the next Tim Russert. Who will be the next television journalist to vet future candidates?
Mike Allen said the names John King of CNN, Gwen Ifill and Chuck Todd. John Harris offered up Chris Matthews. Then Mike Allen noted that NY Observer had also mentioned John Harris as a possible replacement.
