20 June 2020

Among other things, its success points to perhaps the single most important factor: nonviolent discipline.


Sanders Is Not Another McGovern. I Know – I Worked on McGovern’s Campaign.
26 February 2020

With Bernie Sanders now the clear front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination, we are hearing talk that — despite polls indicating otherwise — he would not be able to win against Donald Trump in November. Repeated comparisons are being made to the 1972 landslide defeat of George McGovern — the only time the Democrats nominated a genuine progressive — with the implication that a similar fate would befall a Sanders nomination.
