  •  George McGovern was my first vote too. (4+ / 0-)

    I was so proud to vote for him. I lived in Manhattan then and remember my first politcal astonishment to find out that he only carried Massachusetts and Manhattan. I honestly don't know if that's true but it was election night 1972 that I heard it -- so it must have been on the tube watching the returns.

    – William Faulkner
    My condolences to his family and to all of us who remember.
