Who Was Lyndon Baines Johnson?
“I knew from the start that I was bound to be crucified either way I moved. If I left the woman I really loved—the Great Society in order to get involved with that bitch of a war on the other side of the world, then I would lose everything at home. . . . But if I left that war and let the Communists take over South Vietnam, then I would be seen as a coward and my nation as an appeaser. . .”
