Luke Russert

Luke Russert, son of the late Tim Russert, gave a keynote address during our welcome party Saturday night.

Welcome Party

Clearly it was a packed house. More than 1,000 people packed. And all of us were hungry. Someone made a disparaging remark involving cattle that I refuse to repeat here. Although it was hilarious at the time.

Russert was a great way to start off the week. He’s not too political and remembers what it was like to be a college student (He graduated from Boston College last year). He mentioned beer quite a bit and even offered to buy a round for those eligible. He was an instant hit.

But he also touched on topics more serious and profound. The youth vote was huge this past election year and Russert made the assertion that without it, without us, Barack Obama would not have been elected President. Without the higher youth voter turnout, Obama wouldn’t have won the key states like Iowa and Indiana, giving those votes to McCain.

All in all, it was a good night. A little crowded but that’s to be expected.
