    but she voted for him time and again because he had the requisite [R] after his name.

    •  Betcha she voted for Shirley Temple! (1+ / 0-)

      All the True Believer R's seem to have voted for Ms. Temple, but there were not enough of them in the Palo Alto/Menlo Park area to count, at least not back then, despite all the money sloshing around the peninsula.

      I was already pretty much a yellow-dog Democrat, but I liked the idea of having such a credible counterweight to Nixon and Kissinger in the Republican party. And make no mistake, McCloskey was passionately against the Vietnam War.
