Eugene McCarthy died in December 2005 at the age of 89. His political legacy will forever be defined by 1968, when McCarthy turned his opposition to the Vietnam War into a crusade for the presidency. The McCarthy Tapes takes us back to the 1968 campaign through the audio recordings of the McCarthy archive.
