It is sad to read the story that George McGovern is nearing death.
I voted for the first time in 1972. I actually engaged in an internal debate of whether I should vote for Nixon or McGovern.
I believe while choosing the road less traveled I chose wisely. I only regret the many wrong turns our country has taken in subsequent years. The single most under-used, or mis-used, verb in our electoral process is "think". Had we done more of that I believe we would have been in a different, and better, place today. That is what George McGovern asked of us.
