Chapter Three explores the quixotic campaign of Eugene McCarthy, with a particular focus on the first primary in New Hampshire, when he surprised the nation with a good showing, helping to drive out Johnson. Student volunteers flocked to help his campaign, illustrating how portions of the Baby Boomer generation were altering the political landscape. Yet McCarthy – a former professor and poet – was an indifferent campaigner with little appeal to a broader Democratic coalition.
