  •  McGovern was my next vote. (0+ / 0-)

    Then I voted for some obscure Independent who I can't even remember, then for Carter.

    I come from a conservative state and a family who has always voted independently, switching back and forth. But back then, Idaho almost always voted for the winner, and Idaho conservatives were nothing like they are now.

    It took me some time before I realized that I voted for my self interests, and the liberals better reflected them, and my social positions as well.

    Right many are called, and damn few are chosen.
