Johnson’s staff in the White House working on a State of the Union address.

“That Vietnam is Johnson’s main foreign policy legacy is all the more unfortunate because he proved, on the whole, an able custodian of the American-made international order. He failed as commander in chief; the Vietnam War was a debacle for which he bore primary responsibility.

Brands, “Johnson the Power Broker”
