Met and Worked to get him elected. An early lesson in my life how hard it was to work for the poor and feed the hungry. RIP to a man with the courage to follow his convictions.

My sister worked with the McGovern campaign back in '72, but I was still in HS and not into politics when I was too young to vote.  I do have fond, but vague, memories of George McGovern. I agree that we need more politicians like him; ones who really care about the electorate rather than catering to their big donors.
