Former U.S. Sen. George McGovern said he regrets dropping Missouri Sen. Thomas F. Eagleton as his initial running mate for the 1972 presidential race because Eagleton had been treated for mental illness.

McGovern dropped Eagleton after news reports of his treatment, including electroshock therapy, for manic depression. R. Sargent Shriver Jr.
