George McGovern (1922-2012)

Forty years ago, I had a chance to do two good things at once. While voting against Richard Nixon, I could vote for George McGovern, the acid, amnesty, and abortion candidate who wanted to get us out of the Asian mess. I did so, but there weren't enough of us. McGovern remained, making more sense than most younger politicians.
