  •  Knocking on doors in 1971 and today (8+ / 0-)

    I was 13 when I started early with the McGovern campaign. I persevered through the awful November election in 1972. It was my attempt to put pressure on to end the War and to allow a good and moral man to have a chance to serve the country as President.

    In a few minutes I will be at it again. This time in my adopted home of Massachusetts on behalf of Elizabeth Warren and my Congressman John Tierney. I hope and pray and work that the dream that did not prevail in 1972 will be realized in 2012 and that President Obama will be reelected and we can give him a team in Congress that reflects the type of moral clarity and commitment to people that Senator McGovern exhibited during his life.
