…and George McGovern on Hunter S. Thompson.
I always considered McGovern a well-meaning by-product of an alternative timeline of history that should never have occurred. Had Bobby Kennedy not been assassinated, it’s very likely that he would’ve won in 1968 and ran for re-election in 1972. It’s also likely that Bobby wouldn’t have run at all if JFK hadn’t been murdered in 1963. If the Kennedys had lived, it’s impossible to fully imagine how events would’ve played out.
