Just breaking. No further info. at this time. Prayers up.

I certainly didn't always agree with her but always enjoyed watching and listening to her. At age 76, reports like this always remind me or my own mortality.

Don’t think she is considered Number 3 in the Eddie Money, Ric O. death prediction.

Anyone know what she died from? At that age, cancer or heart attack are good guesses.

I always thought her name was really cool. And she appeared to be a really nice person.

Nother Democrat journalist goes to sleep with the fishes. I don’t care and the world’s already a better place without Cokie Roberts in it.

Her voice seemed to get more and more croaky over time.I would have thought throat or respiratory issues.

Similar thing happened to my dad. A lot of the drugs used to treat cancer have nasty side effects, including clot issues.
