George McGovern has died: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-20021435

I didn't know that Bill Clinton worked for him on the '72 campaign.

Sad. I guess at 90 he lived a long and full life, and I wish there were more like him nowadays in US gov't (at least on many issues). His election loss remains for me the prime example of how unreasonably intolerant of mental illness society is, and what a shame that is. Because of people's ignorance, Nixon became president. Nice job, people.

I saw that on the news too, about Clinton. Made me smile.

Yeah, some of the tributes have made me a bit teary eyed.
