William F. Buckley Dies

William F. Buckley has died. It is a sad day for conservatives, who will miss his intellect, humor and eloquence. Read the National Review Online tributes here.

Buckley's passing makes me wonder: who is his equivalent on the left? I cannot thing of anyone who comes close; is there one? And if not, why not?

Update: Republican Senate Leader Mitch McConnell comments on to Buckley's life and legacy.
