1 thought on “John Glenn’s Gold Star Mothers speech

  1. I remember all the news about this speech back then. Being an Ohioan, I’m familiar with both of these guys, and even though they were both Democrats, I always had FAR more respect for Glenn than Metzenbaum, who seemed rather abrasive and unlikeable. Glenn went on to win this primary and then the Senate seat, and Metzenbaum eventually won Ohio’s other seat, and he & Glenn served together for decades as Ohio’s US Senators, although they didn’t much like each other personally.
