Summary
Congressman, senator, presidential candidate, and author-Eugene McCarthy was all of these, and one of the most progressive public figures of the twentieth century as well. This program offers a fascinating glimpse into the Senator's life, personality, and thinking. In interviews recorded during the last decade of his life, McCarthy muses on a wide range of subjects-from his early years in Minnesota to his experiences as the most prominent antiwar leader of the Vietnam era. The program blends rarely seen archival footage with McCarthy's wry observations, revealing the wit and intellect that set him apart from so many of his fellow politicians.
