RR meets Sen. McGovern

I had a huge thrill yesterday, I got to meet a huge hero of mine; a Democrat that stood up against an unpopular war because it was the right thing to do, not because it was politically useful. This man defines political integrity to me. Although Sen. McGovern is one of the most pragmatic politicians to ever hit the stage in South Dakota and the Nation, you cannot argue he has ever been anything but true to himself. For the full story of a true American hero, check out his bio on Wikipedia.

I am so looking forward to the opening of the McGovern Library in Mitchell this October. Should be a real barn burner, especially when this is such an encouraging year for Democrats in SD.

We love you, George!

  1. He's my hero too. The first campaign I ever worked on was his in '72. Lucky you, face to face with the great man. Well, I still have a blue and white "McGovern '72" sticker.
