ABC News: Evening News- George McGovern 1972 VP Selection Drama



This post was originally posted at The New Democrat

Senator Tom Eagleton who by most accounts had a very good and productive year in public office as Governor of Missouri and then later in Congress as a Missouri Senator was a victim of the Richard Nixon dirty tricks operation. Senator Eagleton did see a shrink and I believe at one point on medication for some breakdown that he had. But he was completely sane by the time he was elected to the Senate in 1968 if not before that. But that of course was not good enough for the Nixon campaign that made Tom Eagleton looks like a loony tune or something.
