Sen. John Kerry: 'George McGovern Was Right'

Sen. John Kerry: 'George McGovern Was Right'
George McGovern | August 2012


Sen. John Kerry shares some things in common with ex-U.S. Sen. George McGovern: Both lost presidential bids, both were longtime Democratic senators and both were decorated as war heroes.

In the wake of McGovern's Sunday passing, Kerry says McGovern was a "voice of clarity and conviction at a time when America needed it most."

He says McGovern lived a remarkable life with humility, never boasting about his own heroism as a decorated bomber pilot, even when it might have helped him in the 1972 presidential election.

Instead, McGovern lost that race in a historic landslide to Richard Nixon, who soon after resigned amid the Watergate scandal.

Kerry says: "George McGovern may not have been president, but George McGovern was right."
