The last great liberal atop a Presidential ticket (yes, including Nader) might have saved the nation, and the world, from Nixonism (a disease which still afflicts us yet).
And he might have had a chance if he’d only had enough procedural control over his own convention. He wound up not giving his acceptance speech until the wee hours; not a good selling point when you’re trying to show you’ve got the chops to be Commander in Chief.
Still, he remained a champion of the common folk and of a more just society to the end of his days. A populist, a humble crusader, a role model.
