Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 11, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta TKc LetWmdge Herald Third Section Lcttibridge, Alberta, Wednesday, October 11, 1972 __ Pages 3344 George McGovern goes about his business Candid, calm and confident ____ if __ icsirps from 1 The most impo By WILLIAM V. SHANNON "New York Times Service George McClovcrn may be Hie most underrated figure in American politics. in winning his parly's noim nation and in the opening weeks o! tliis campaign, he has shown perseverance against fo.-mwl able opposition, calm ar.d self confidence in periods of adver sitv and a candid, un-neurolic friendly personality. Having flown dangerous bombing mis sions as a pilot in the Secon World War, be has tested bi own courage and does not hav lo posture or pretend to demm his masculinity. Since his nomination. McGoi ern has with good sense workec to conciliate other factions his party. It is a commentai" on the reputation of politician as well as on the political ine erience of many voters that lis process causes disilluion- menl. McGovern, people say, is just another politician." This s rather like saying, "ah thai 'ieasso he's just another lainle1.'." Or, "Thai Leonard Semslien he's jusl another onductor." A candidate who is not a skill- ul politican never makes it to he White House. Politics, as he old saying goes, is the art o? inclusion, nol exclusion. McGovern is naturally reacti- ng out to voters who have not supported him in Ihe nast, try- ing lo broaden his coalition and build a maiorily consensus among the different factions vaces, regions and interesi groups which make up this var legated country, It is a wise and necessary political effort To blunt that effort, his ene mies are waging a two-pronge ut contrary altack. On the one and, they arc trying to picture IcGovcrn as another Barry Goldwater, leading a country lub crusade. But that is exact- v what he is not. Some of his arly followers may have Utop- an ideas, but George McGovern s no close minded ideologue, iather, he is an experienced jolilician moving in the main- stream of the country's Liberal iradition. i On the othc- hand, McGov-1 ern is criticized because he re- examines his lax and welfare proposals and, as a result, al- tered them somewhat. He has also downplayed otne of the subsidiary themes of his cam- paign. He is, it is argued, loo pragmatic. This criticism comes with ill grace from the supporters of Mr. Nixon, one o( Ihe most tireless broken-field runners in the history of Ameri- can politics who has reversed himself on a dozen issues from recognition o f Communists, China to the imposition of wage and price controls. But, in any event, a political leader's programs are r.ol like a builder's blueprints. Rather, j Ihey arc signposts on the road he 'hopes the country will tra- vel. Through the partisan smoke and clamor, McGov- ern's signposts are perfectly clear. He would lead Ihe way o an America of peace, com- >assion and concern for the iiingry child and the ailing old person, for the overtaxed, fed- up worker on the assembly line and Ihe hard-pressed small farmer, fo1: the malnourished Indian on Ihe iorgoltcn reserva- j lion and Ihe unseen war orphan in a distanl land. H is nol for nothing thai the lale Robert Kennedy called McGovern. "the most decent man in Ihe United States Senate." Their passion is empty beer cans arp tlin hGS Bv ANDREW H.
