Molly was unapologetically liberal. She was funny, brutally honest, folksy, and had a lot of heart. She was a woman and a political pundit/reporter. It was a joy to read what was on her mind. It makes me sad that she passed away -- that her wonderfully gutsy voice is forever silenced.
I will always remember her hilarious Ross Perot stories from when she covered him in her home state. When I read "Shrub : The Short but Happy Political Life of George W. Bush" she really did sum up the man who was to become our president as a man whose life was checkered with failure only to have his father and his friends bail him out time after time. We were warned.
Molly, you will be missed.
