  •  That's fine... I just put politicians (0+ / 0-)

    pretty far down the list when it comes to Civil Rights.

    Yes, they made the laws, but the real heroes in my view were on the streets.

    •  It's both/and, not either/or (0+ / 0-)

      Some men see things as they are and ask why. I see things that never were and ask why not?

        either/or. I'm not sure where you got that, unless it's a strawman of sorts.

        In any case, I'd think it would be painfully obvious that talk of LBJ on this issue right now is not going to do anyone any good... particularly if you're trying to heal the rift between Clinton and Obama supporters.

        Bad timing.
