Former President Bill Clinton on L.B.J.:
“ Even when we parted company over the Vietnam War, I never hated L.B.J. the way many young people of my generation came to. I couldn't. What he did to advance civil rights and equal opportunity was too important. I remain grateful to him. L.B.J. got to me, and after all these years, he still does. ”
The quote is from Pres. Clinton’s review of a new book, ‘The Passage of Power’, by Robert Caro, the fourth in a series of books on L.B.J. by Caro.
