Ken Blanchard

I should add belatedly that I too admired and liked George McGovern. When he ran for President I was very young and a little bit disappointed that Nixon won. Looking back, I think differently.

I think McGovern's greatest achievement was the one that Jon mentions above: rebuilding the South Dakota Democratic Party. We need a stronger second party in the state and that means we need another George.

I had the pleasure of meeting McGovern only once, when he appeared at what was then the Borders bookstore in Rapid City. I got to shake his hand, and I am grateful for that.
