McGovern and me

I posted the picture below, thinking of the days I campaigned for George McGovern in the Massachusetts presidential primary in 1972. So many of us supporting McGovern were idealistic and full of hope, after opposing a senseless war. Sen. Obama's candidacy brought those memories back.
My daughter just called and said, "Mom, who's going to know who that is?" Good point. George McGovern, then Senator from South Dakota and running for president, is the man on the left. I'm standing next to him. I was the area coordinator for the campaign in a town north of Boston. I don't know who the guy behind me is.

I love the picture but I'll admit I looked at the picture and didn't know who it was though. You look awesome. What a great memory!
