Gallery: LBJ the Power Broker

Johnson’s funeral, January 24, 1973.

“Americans like to think of their country as the most powerful in the world, and so it has been for three-quarters of a century. But being the most powerful is a far cry from being omnipotent. Johnson discovered this in the 1960s and made the best of it -- which, on balance, was surprisingly good. Compared to then, the United States today is even less powerful relative to the rest of the world, which makes Johnson’s lesson all the more pertinent.” -- H.W. Brands, “Johnson the Power Broker”
