Beyond the Horse Race: Russert’s Big Picture

Now that the Democratic horse race is over, here’s a great quote from Tim Russert today that really drives home today’s significance:

“We can’t take our eyes off the big picture.  There are a lot of very appealing, interesting, sexy subplots.  But the big picture – think about this – a freshman Senator from Illinois, who refers to himself as the ‘skinny black kid from the south side of Chicago’ – has defeated Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination.  The Clinton machine – a former First Lady and a former President.  It truly is David versus Goliath, and it has happened. And we have to understand and focus on how historic this night really is.”
