    civil rights legislation would have ever been passed if not under that "Sourthern" President?

    My newspaper printed another quotation of LBJ's that I kept and used on an Obama photo to wear to celebrate today.

    In LBJ's speach calling for the Voting Rights Act of 1865, he said:

    There is no Negro problem.  There is no Southern problem.  There is no Northern problem.  There is only an American problem.

    I am glad to bury the artificial divisions between us.  Together, we can fix much of what ails America.
