It was a better place when at least a few politicians had core convictions without having to worry about what the Press says about them, or what some poll says.
Barry and others on our side, a few, such as Gene McCarthy on theirs.
Although I disagreed with Gene McCarthy on almost everything, I respected his willingness to stand for his beliefs no matter what. I wish we had more conservatives like Barry and more liberals like McCarthy. We'd ahve a better country.
