    I was curious about Rustin's role in the Democratic Party and came across that account of the history of 1972.  It described Rustin as allied with some characters, among them Ben Wattenberg and Scoop Jackson, that I viewed as the "enemy" back then.

    It made me think about Rustin's reasons for that alliance and how we McGovernites made bear some responsibility for the party getting so off track.

    So check out that link if you're interested.
