Editor says, what if Walter Cronkite accepted the VP spot from George McGovern in 1972? Please note that the opinions expressed in this post do not necessarily reflect the views of the author(s).
Editor says, McGovern apparently wanted Cronkite on the ticket, but didn't think he'd accept. When Cronkite heard of this years later, he responded that he would've readily agreed. I've simply allowed Cronkite to hear of the news through the grapevine. Editorial comments are entered in [light green] typeface.
