Enthusiasm

There seems to be a lack of Enthusiasm for the candidates. There is more Excitement to beat the other candidate.

Was there ever a candidate that excited you? For me it was George McGovern. I now look back at it as youthful idealism. At the time I thought it would be wonderful to have this honest, compassionate man leading our nation. I don't know if he would have made a great president, but he has continued to live his life by doing for others.

Who was it for you?

Pre-2000s Ralph Nader, before he became his own brand of tedious ineffectuality.

Historically, I'd have to say Gracie Allen.

I would have expected you to say Rufus T. Firefly. Maybe Pat Paulsen.

George McGovern is to this day probably my favorite.

That's surprising. Isn't he way ahead of your time? I guess it's understandable, I've always liked Adlai Stevenson.

Any time you're interested in a certain line of work, you've got to study your predecessors.
