One Bright Shining Moment


One Bright Shining Moment retraces George McGovern's bold presidential campaign of 1972 - a grassroots campaign that fought for peace and justice...a campaign that positioned ideas and people first...and, for a myriad of reasons, a campaign that was crushed in workmanlike fashion by the Butcher from Whittier, Richard Nixon. The tragedy of the '72 campaign is this: George McGovern might have been the only candidate in our modern era to run for President who truly understood what an incredible monument America could be to the human race. Without a doubt he was the most honest.
