Sen. McGovern's passing

Saw the news over the weekend that George McGovern passed away. I got to meet him a few years back when he and Bob Dole were named World Food Prize laureates for their work in food aid around the world. I was just digging through my files and found some of my information from when I got to chat with both men. Here's a bit from McGovern that I thought was pretty neat, especially considering today's political landscape. Dole and McGovern were definitely, at that point in their lives, fond of setting aside any political affiliations for the advancement of a common goal. Pretty neat old gentlemen! I recall during a prepared speech they gave, McGovern was the guy with all the real answers and Dole was the color commentator/guy with all the jokes.

 

Anybody else have any experiences with McGovern during or after his career in politics?
