About this deal

Many of Humphrey's liberal friends and allies abandoned him because of his refusal to publicly criticize Johnson's Vietnam War policies. When Minnesota Communists tried to seize control of the new party in 1945, Humphrey became an engaged anticommunist and led the successful fight to oust the Communists from the DFL. If that truce were broken by Kennedy's entering the Democratic race, however, Shriver would be seen as sleeping with the enemy if he continued to serve the Administration in any capacity. Ted agreed to "keep in close touch" with Shriver through the convention and said that if Steve Smith was the source of negative comments about Shriver, he would "slow him down or shut him up.

After the convention's vote, the Mississippi delegation and half of the Alabama delegation walked out of the hall. On May 20, Humphrey said Nixon's proposal to limit schoolchildren busing was "insufficient in the amount of aid needed for our children, deceptive to the American people, and insensitive to the laws and the Constitution of this nation", in a reversal of his prior stance, while in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.Daley's Chicago police attacked and beat these protesters, most of them young college students, which amplified the growing feelings of unrest among the public. He ran again in the 1972 Democratic primaries but lost to George McGovern and declined to be McGovern's running mate.

When Shriver tried to help unload the casket from the plane, some of the aides pushed him away, bitter in their grief. Humphrey was reportedly "crushed", [70] so hurt by the remark that he broke into tears while driving home.By the third week in June newspapers were reporting that Shriver was one of Humphrey's top choices for a running mate.

Humphrey told Ryan, "I want this town cleaned up and I mean I want it cleaned up now, not a year from now or a month from now, right now", and "You take care of the law enforcement. Humphrey did not enjoy working as a pharmacist, and his dream remained to earn a doctorate in political science and become a college professor.There were three bills of particular emotional importance to me: the Peace Corps, a disarmament agency, and the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty. The move backfired: although the civil rights plank cost Truman the Dixiecrats' support, it gained him many votes from blacks, especially in large northern cities.
