34. I never said that war wasn't important in the grand scheme.
It most certainly is, but it would be nice to judge the merits of LBJ's accomplishments away from the Vietnam banner.

And yes, while LBJ was re-elected in a landslide in large part due to JFK's assassination, he was still elected, and I think that eliminates the point you were trying to make that LBJ was some sort of un-elected maverick who did not have the mandate of the people behind him.
