Recordamos a George McGovern, ex senador y candidato demócrata a presidente contrario a la guerra


Escuche/Vea/Lea (en inglés)

George McGovern, ex senador de Dakota del Sur y candidato a presidente por el Partido Demócrata, falleció a la edad de 90 años. A McGovern se lo recuerda principalmente por haber sido rival de Richard Nixon en las elecciones presidenciales de 1972, con una plataforma electoral que planteaba el retiro de las tropas estadounidenses de Vietnam, la reducción del gasto de defensa y una amnistía para quienes habían evadido el reclutamiento. Nos acompaña Stephen Vittoria, director del documental "One Bright Shining Moment: The Forgotten Summer of George McGovern" (Un momento brillante y magnífico: el olvidado verano de George McGovern).
