  •  In So Doing, He Became More of a Threat (7+ / 0-)

    King, in teaming with Robert Kennedy against war in general and the inequities of the Vietnam war in particular, became a more substanial threat to the opposition (RFK was equally a threat.) The change in focus had the potential for establishing a wide-ranging political base. The two assassinations turned me against politics for a long time because it now seemed futile.
