It's an interesting portrayal of the 1964 election from LBJ's perspective. Shows the intensity of him and his dramatic excesses -- in his persuasion of others, in his anger, and, more laughably, in his self-pity too. The recent effort to blame LBJ for JFK's assassination is faulty. Even JFK knew there were assassination risks everywhere, so LBJ believing JFK might be killed is not evidence of any participation in it. What's strange is that the alleged guy who killed JFK (Oswald) had also attempted to kill a right-wing segregationist agitator in Spring 1963 (Ret. Gen. Walker). So the guy who killed JFK was pro-desegregation, JFK was pro-desegregation, and LBJ was pro-desegregation. Aside from the Vietnam War, which is admittedly a big "aside", LBJ was responsible for many things we recognize as good about modern American life and government. Anti-poverty, Medicare, Medicaid, fair practices in hiring, promotions, education, public accommodations, housing, and more. All Great Society laws and programs. LBJ is overlooked by recent historians for one important reason. He wasn't from the Northeast.
