Response to Cooley Hurd (Original post)

18. I lived through all three and yes, it was devastating. Like all the air had gone out of the room.

I must admit that I felt sorry for LBJ. I didn't know much about politics in those days. I just saw this big, not-so-handsome man taking urbane John Kennedy's place. And inheriting the Viet Nam mess.
