    It's a mystery to me too. But he did it and to me that makes LBJ a great man who rose above his background. Of course, with Vietnam he then did a horrible job. I guess that's the problems with having human beings as president.

    I give Kennedy credit because while his hand was forced on most of what he did - he did do the right thing and he did it because he felt morally obligated to do so.

    Eisenhower did almost nothing. He enforced the law but nothing more. Lincoln to Teddy Roosevelt the Republican party was the party of civil rights. But it ended with Teddy.
