Political Journalist David S. Broder, a Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist for The Washington Post and one of the most prominent writers on national politics was remembered today at a memorial service in Washington, DC.
Along with family & friends, Vice President Joe Biden and Washington Post Company Chairman Don Graham attended and spoke at the memorial, which took place at the National Press Club.
Mr. Broder was often called the dean of the Washington press Corp, a nickname Broder earned during his career in part for his political analysis and his influence on political trends in his articles, television appearances and books.
In recognizing Broder's achievement, President Obama recently stated, "David filed his first story from our nation’s capital before starting as a junior political writer on the 1960 presidential election. In the decades that followed, he built a well-deserved reputation as the most respected and incisive political commentator of his generation "
Mr. Broder died March 9 in Arlington of complications from diabetes.
