George McGovern did not exactly have great success as a presidential candidate. He lost all but one state to Richard Nixon.

His letter challenges Obama to step up and lead America with bold initiatives. Initiatives that could revive the economy and build up the middle class like President Roosevelt’s New Deal. We discuss his ambitious blueprint and whether he believes President Obama is the man to get the job done.
