One of the Great Train Wrecks of All Time

No the title does not reference any events in my personal life in any way. Ever.

John Dickerson does a great behind the scene telling of a slice of time during the ill-fated McGovern candidacy for U.S.  President in 1972. Specifically, the Eagleton Affair (Wikipedia on Thomas Eagleton).

Question: When does John Dickerson sleep? Dude just started as anchor on Face the Nation, the venerable CBS Sunday morning news show. On a personal level, I’m excited and happy for him. Congratulations to Mr. Dickerson on the new gig and I sure hope he keeps the Whistlestop episodes coming.

Dickerson also posted about Eagleton over on the Face the Nation site. Seriously, when does he sleep?
