    And that global view would be truer to McGovern's legacy.  In the dairy I did yesterday about his (still ongoing) career, I noticed that his nomination acceptance speech included the following:

    I have no secret plan for peace. I have a public plan. And as one whose heart has ached for the past ten years over the agony of Vietnam, I will halt the senseless bombing of Indochina on Inaugural Day.

    There will be no more Asian children running ablaze from bombed-out schools. There will be no more talk of bombing the dikes or the cities of the North.

    God, would it be good to hear a Democrat talk loud and clear about what we've done to the Iraqis and pledge to stop it!  Of  course, we want to save the lives of our own troops, but what about the citizens of the country where we are waging war?
