    He was law counsel to Joseph McCarthy during McCarthy's communist hunt of the '50s.
    When he ran for senator of New York, he promised he was not using it as a stepping stone for a run at the Presidency.
    Opponents to his senatorial race claimed he was a carpetbagger, a non-New Yorker running for a New York senatorial seat.
    In the middle of his freshman senatorial term, he began his run for presidency.
    He was a voice for civil rights.
    He left Harvard to fight in World War II, and then returned to his studies.
    He resigned as Joseph McCarthy's counsel after six months and condemned McCarthy's tactics.
    He investigated corruption in the teamster's union.
    As attorney general he took on the mafia; convictions against organized crime were up 800% during his tenure.
    Concerning the Supreme Court order of 1954 for school desegregation, he said, 'I happen to believe that the 1954 decision was right.
    But my belief does not matter. It is the law.
    Some of you may believe the decision was wrong.
    That does not matter. It is the law.'
    He came out pretty early calling for an end to the Vietnam War.
