For about the fifth time in my life I am officially obsessed with the life and legacy of Lyndon Baines Johnson, one of the great political figures of the 20th Century. Having not touched a book about LBJ since the late 1990s (With the exception of Robert Caro's Master of the Senate which came out in 20002), this week I've emerssed myself once again in both of Michael Bescloss' books on the LBJ's White House tapes as well as multiple biographies by Robert Dallek, and the single volume works of Doris Kearns Goodwin, Robert Unger, and Joseph Califano.
Given this reality, it is very likely my posts in upcoming weeks are going to be viewed from a Johnsonian perspective which could make things very interesting.
