Interview with Walter Mondale
QUESTION 55
INTERVIEWER:

I'M SORRY WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO—THERE WE GO.

Walter Mondale:

I do not believe those demonstrations had that effect, it showed that we were an open party where these sorts of things could be heard and that kind of uh, behavior permitted and in fact we went on to win that election by the largest margin that any Democratic candidates have ever won the presidency and vice presidency by. So I would have to say that the net effect was positive.
