    Anyone who claims to be a Democrat should know enough to recognize the contribution that McGovern made to the party.  He pioneered a grass roots campaign for the nomination, and the McGovern Commission opened the nomination to outsider candidates like Obama.

    There was also something about bravely standing against the Vietnam War, and something called the McGovern-Hatfield Amendment.

    During the dark Bush years, McGovern was again courageously standing against Bush and Cheney when a lot of Democrats were hiding in the crevices.

    Are you the change or not?

      I was just commenting that due to some of the comments here, there are different opinions on his political career.  Your opinion is duly noted.  My comment had to do with the fact that no one here was trivializing his military career, which was implied by rock the ground's comment.  Thanks for the history lesson.
