Cokie Roberts died of breast cancer at 75.

She was as prominent as any political journalist through the 90s, and just sort of faded away.  I can't remember the last time I saw her on TV.

Very sad.  I thought that she was a solid journalist and a solid person.

She was pretty good.  When I used to watch Brinkley, she was a good guest.
