This year marks the 40th anniversary of the first time I voted for a presidential candidate. The candidate I chose was George McGovern, who has now died at the age of 90. Since then, I have voted for many candidates in local and national elections and primaries, but I still think of that first vote, how meaningful it was to step into that voting booth, and how happy I was -- and am -- to have cast that vote for McGovern. Even if he did not win, he was an honorable man, certainly more so than the one who defeated him.
