McCarthy has spoken out against President Johnson's policies, saying "party unity is not a sufficient excuse for silence." The former educator has served the last 20 years representing his state in both houses of Congress. A thinking liberal, he has authored several books in the political vein. Sen. Robert F. Kennedy has called McCarthy's bid for the presidential nomination "a healthy influence on the Democratic party," There are some who say McCarthy is acting as a straw in the wind to test political climate for a Kennedy push, Testing ground will be the primaries, first of which will be in March in New Hampshire. Here in an NEA Visuals Special are highlights in McCarthy's political career.

He also has attacked the President s foreign policies and economic programs. Speak for Yourself, Qene And the Minnesota senator is doing just that after beating the drums in prior years for his colleague, the then-Senator Hubert H. Humphrey. In 1956, above, McCarthy stumped unsuccessfully to get Humphrey nominated as vice-president to run with Adlal Stevenson on the Democratic ticket. He is seen with Stevenson's campaign manager, James Finnigan. At top right, McCarthy holds Humphrey photo in 1959 when he was cochairman of a Humphrey-for-President campaign—again unsuccessful.
