Fragment:

"One of the great ironies of American politics is that George McGovern, one of the most misinterpreted and misunderstood men ever to seek the presidency, was also perhaps one of the most intelligent and far-sighted. Sadly, he is generally remembered for his landslide defeat to Richard Nixon in the 1972 presidential contest.

"The stigma of that defeat has often overshadowed McGovern's otherwise influential and respectable career in politics. Richard Michael Marano shows that despite his infamous defeat, McGovern very much a man of high principles stood tall and spoke his conscience when he decided in 1983 that he would again run for the presidency.

While his candidacy was at first seen by many as a pathetic attempt by a political has been to relive past glories, McGovern quickly proved his critics wrong by running a solid, admirable campaign." "This book is an in-depth analysis of the 1984 Democratic campaign, as well as a detailed discussion of George McGovern's common sense program for America."--BOOK JACKET.
