186. One problem - I doubt many people think of LBJ as a right winger.
Today we mostly think that war support comes from the rw. Back then it did not. The kids and protesters were the exception. The older people were WWII supporters who still thought that the MIC was protecting America and not their own pocketbook.

I would not put it past LBJ. He was capable of some real evil. And he was extremely ambitious.
