No one remembers this now, but Tom McCall was a strong supporter of the Vietnam War and had nothing but distaste for the anti-war activists.

More surprising, Mark Hatfield is now a strong supporter of Bush’s foreign policy and the War on Terror.

Some of the OR pols had weird quirks (such as Maurine Neuberger being a hawk, Hatfield’s dovishness (and Dem attempts to get him to switch parties, which he always steadfastly refused to do), and McCall’s hawkishness). However, McCall’s pro-war stance had little to do with the rest of his governance, and his ultraenvironmentalist schtick was a bit over the top. His discouragement of growth and development was ill-advised (remember his “Visit, but please don’t move here” ?), and when he tried for a comeback in ‘78, he was thumped by Vic Atiyeh.
