Joseph McCarthy will not be remembered by history as a charismatic but largely ineffectual Senator from Wisconsin. He'll be remembered as a fiery demagogue whose very name has come to represent a shameful episode in American history. Now New York Times political writer Tom Wicker, who remembers the day as a young man when he ran into Joe McCarthy in the hall in a Senate office building, tries to recast the complete man McCarthy was, in a book called "Shooting Star."
