Was about to post this. As an avid NPR listener I am saddened.

I first saw her as an ABC reporter and then later on as an NPR political commentator.

Really loved her insights on Washington politics . . . very much reported from a near unbiased position (let's admit that everyone has a bias that will come out on occasion, NTTAWWT).

RIP to a great lady.

RIP

she was one of my favorites on the sunday morning shows. always level-headed and seemed to want an earnest discussion instead of just throwing out talking points.
