Former senator and presidential candidate Bob Dole noted the presence of George McGovern at the funeral of Richard Nixon’s wife, Pat. McGovern had been a bitter rival of Nixon and had run against him as the candidate of the Democrat party in the 1972 presidential election.
Intrigued, Dole asked McGovern why he had come to the funeral. McGovern replied, "You can't go on campaigning forever."
Sooner or late, we all need to let it go.
