Eugene McCarthy: I'm Sorry I Was Right

"The press called him Clean Gene when he ran against the war in Vietnam. The Needle was his nickname on Capitol Hill, in honor of his wicked wit. The poet Robert Lowell declared him, 'A One-man Greek Chorus.' A friend says, 'He is Renaissance Man Super-squared.'

We follow the career of the former Senator from Minnesota and note his accomplishments with rare archival footage and scenes shot on location from his birthplace in Watkins, Minnesota to his current home in Woodville, Virginia."
