Description:

This paper discusses how two prominent political figures, President Richard Nixon and Senator Eugene McCarthy, held radically different viewpoints on the Vietnamese conflict. While the former sought to prevent the spread of what he believed was a force that threatened the very nature of democracy, the latter held strong convictions that the humanitarian cost of the war was simply too great to justify any gains.
