Mark K. Shriver, a brother of former California First Lady Maria Shriver, explores his relationship with their father in his new book, "A Good Man: Rediscovering My Father, Sargent Shriver." Shriver, George McGovern's Democratic vice presidential running mate in 1972, was married to Eunice Kennedy and served in the Kennedy and Johnson administrations, where he launched the Peace Corps and Head Start. He died 1 1/2 years ago at age 95. His son, 48, lives in Maryland.
