Former Senator Eagleton Dies

Former U.S. Senator Thomas Eagleton died Sunday. May he rest in peace.

Eagleton represented Missouri in the Senate from December 1968 through January 1987.

Senator Eagleton was George McGovern's original running mate in 1972, but resigned as the Democtrats' vice presidential nominee after it was revealed that he had been hospitalized for psychiatric treatment and had twice undergone electroshock therapy for depression.
