NBC political analyst Tim Russert brought his own erasable marker board – and got a new one as a gift from President Malloy – when he spoke on campus a week after the presidential election. Russert, who used a similar board to sort out electoral college scenarios for viewers on election night, attracted an overflow crowd to McKenna Hall. He talked about his career and his Catholic upbringing in south Buffalo, New York, along with the presidential balloting and recounting, which was then ongoing. “What do I think will happen?” he said. “I don’t have a clue.”
