Guest speaker: Larry Tye

Larry Tye, author of Demagogue: The Life and Long Shadow of Senator Joe McCarthy, got first and exclusive access to all of McCarthy's personal and professional papers, along with his medical records, all of which were under lock and key for more than 60 years. They make clear, among other things, that while President Eisenhower brought down McCarthy, he waited longer than his brother and his aides thought he should, in the process ensuring McCarthy would ruin even more lives and further disrupt the operations of the Senate and the nation.
