    Just as I believed that Clinton should not have been impeached.

    Granted, I was somewhat of a Republican partisan back in 1972, but many Republicans in 1972 were to the left of many Democrats in 2012. It's the whole Overton Window thing...

    Now I did grow up, and by 1992 or so I had pretty much seen through the Republican bullshit and become a loyal supporter of Democrats. Unfortunately, I must admit to having voted for Reagan - both times - actions over which I am still profoundly embarassed. And compared to Reagan, perhaps the worst president of the 20th century, Nixon was practically a Democrat.

      what Grandpa Sam Ervin was really like. I mean, Jesse Helms was a Democrat in 1972. Those southern Democrats were not necessarily the "good guys", you know. They make many of our present day Blew Dawgs look more liberal than Bernie Sanders. ;-)
