    because of Vietnam.

    He tried to do guns and butter.

    He was unwilling to challenge the "best and brightest" he inherited from JFK

    he was afraid of being tagged with losing a war

    absent Vietnam, one wonders how much more he could have accomplished in another 4 years

    Those who can, do. Those who can do more, TEACH! If impeachment is off the table, so is democracy
