LBJ: Fascinating, Flawed Prez — MJ

The steady re-examination and reinterpretation of our 36th president is one of the most interesting developments in the shifting world of political history and biography. There are new and often very good books all the time about the Roosevelts, Kennedy and, more often now, Reagan, but the story of the big, drawling Texan is simply a political historian’s dream. The fact that LBJ biographer Robert Caro is about to release the fourth volume of his massive and nearly life-long work on Johnson was, in and of itself, a significant news story. The book, Passage to Power, is out May 1/Marc Johnson, The Johnson Report. More here.

Question: Last play favorite president of last 50 years. Mine? Ronald Reagan. Yours?
