January to March 1965: Vietnam, Selma and Civil Rights, Poverty. MLK, Harry Truman, Ike, Jacqueline Kennedy, Bob McNamara, Richard Russell, George Wallace and others all get calls from LBJ. Historian Michael Beschloss describes LBJ as a near-great president (great were it not for Vietnam) and often “devious in the service of higher purposes.”
