Retro Pop Quiz VII

In the 1972 election the Democrats had two different vice-presidential candidates.

Who were they?

Was one of them Eagleton? Sadly enough, even though that was the first presidential election I would have voted in & I know I would have voted for the Democrats, I can't remember who the actual v-p candidate ended up being.

You are correct. Senator Thomas Eagleton of Missori was the first choice but when it was discovered that he had psychological counseling at one point in his life he was forced to withdraw. I believe there was some talk of alchoholism too.

He was replaced by Sargent Shriver, the father of Maria - first lady of California!
