I thought he was already dead...
Me too, RIP Georgie.
a guy from back when the democrats were not always communists
A decent non-evil guy and he had the old-time class to (mostly) keep his mouth out of politics after he left the political arena.
That said he was really the beginning of the democrat party being jerked to the far left. Truman, Kennedy, Humphrey were the last of the centerist democrats. Clinton got yanked to the center by Ginrich because he liked being president.
McGovern's nomination was a product of the counterculture and anti-war movements.
He was honest about being a pinko. That's admirable at least.
I know about him from that Charlie Daniels song. Thought he was already dead too.
