Barack Obama on Tim Russert

Ben Smith posted a video of Barack Obama being asked for his thoughts about Tim Russert’s death. The sound quality on the video is terrible (Obama is standing outside at the Columbus, Ohio, airport; he’s near the planes, it sounds and looks windy, and I don’t think he was miked), but even though it’s difficult to hear his words, everything is written on his face. He says that he’s grief-stricken, and he certainly looks it. (There is a transcription of the video just below it).
