Another thing I still remember from that horrible day in November of '72 was that some dingbat named Clinton was said to be almost single-handedly responsible for losing 222 counties in Texas--including Waco, where he was McGovern's regional coordinator--and was "terminated without pay, with prejudice," and sent back home to Arkansas "with his tail between his legs" as an aide put it. "We'll never see that stupid bastard again," one aide muttered. "Clinton--Bill Clinton. Yeah. Let's remember that name. He'll never work again, not in Washington"
Hunter started the next page with the words "O Ye of little faith", you can't make that stuff up. So Bill Clinton was in the middle of it back in 1972, with Hillary if I remember correctly because 35 years of experience would put Hillary back into 1972 where she also was involved in McGovern's candidacy. Politics is a strange and cruel entity where one day you are riding high and the next day you are slumming it, or in this case the other way around.
