15. I think maybe Johnson knew *something* was going to happen,

but I don't think he was an active participant / planner. More like "Lyndon, we're going to make you President. And when you're President, you're going to do what we need you to do, to keep the war machine going. We're all going to be very rich. And if you don't do those things we need you to do, well, you know what we're capable of doing to get our way."

I think that's why he chose not to run in '68 and why he aged so incredibly quickly and looked like such a frightened, broken down man by then.
