It has always puzzled me how an ordained Methodist minister, turned politician from a conservative state could be nearly socialistic in his liberal political views.
George McGovern lost his bid for the presidency in a landslide defeat of 61%–38% in 1972.
So how much help will a McGovern endorsement be to the Hillary campaign?
One wonders if it is repaying a political debt rather than an honest endorsement. The article at the link below reports:
"I got to know her 35 years ago," McGovern said. "She and her boyfriend, Bill Clinton, took over the McGovern organization in Texas. They did a terrific job against impossible odds. I never forgot that. They worked night and day in that state."
A note about the aircraft Mr. McGovern flew during WW II:
The B-24 Liberator was sometimes called a “flying coffin” by pilots and crew. The nickname came mostly because the B-24 was prone to catch fire as a result of battle damage because of the fuel tank locations.
The B-24 was a bit larger than the B-17 Flying fortress but was not nearly as robust.
I tip my hat to anyone who completed 35 combat missions as a B-25 pilot.
