Mike Gravel

He's one of the Democratic candidates that have no chance, but I thought I remembered something positive about Gravel. I had to go read his bio to remember what:
"In 1971, [Gravel] waged a successful one-man filibuster for five months
that forced the Nixon administration to cut a deal, effectively ending the
in the United States. He is most prominently known for his release of
Pentagon Papers, the secret official study that revealed the lies and
manipulations of successive U.S. administrations that misled the country
the Vietnam War."
Okay, it was a long time ago, but maybe he'll bring a little of that fire to the current campaign.
And yes, I'm old.
