Deja Vu?

Looks like Mr. McGovern himself thinks the soft-on-terror Dems may be snatching defeat from the jaws of victory in 2008...

"I'm not sure that an anti-war Democrat can win [the general election]. We haven't proved that yet. Some people point to the fact that the war in Vietnam was dreadfully unpopular, but that when I came out for an immediate withdrawal, it helped me win the nomination but not the general election. And there may be some truth about that." -George McGovern, former Democratic presidential nominee who lost the 1972 election in a landslide winning only 38 percent of the popular vote.
