Longtime Washington Post columnist and veteran political reporter David Broder died today at the age of 81. One of the giants of the political scene – he covered every presidential candidate for 50 years, beginning in 1956 – Broder will be missed.

Broder moderated a February 27, 2003, program at The Commonwealth Club of California concerning "Campaign Finance and the Drawing of District Lines." You can read a transcript of the event here.

The impression that although Broder was more centralist than conservati¬ve, he did give Republican¬s a bit more slack than he did Democrats. It may have just been a balancing act between being objective, and pleasing his MSM masters. That was the downfall of others like Bill Moyers, Dan Rather & Phil Donahue.
