Q: What about the GOP’s charge that the left has hijacked the Democratic Party?
McGovern: I won’t think that will happen. I’ve always been proud to be a liberal. I’ve never thought of myself as a big left-winger. How the heck do people think I got elected in South Dakota? I never felt like some wild-eyed left-winger. I had a few of those people supporting me—I needed votes wherever I could get them. The Republican Party was a great party. That’s the party that’s been hijacked. ~MSNBC
