Storyline

November 22, 1963. President John F. Kennedy has just been assassinated and Vice President Lyndon Johnson is now President. One of his first acts as President is to reaffirm the US government's intention to pass the Civil Rights Act. This Act was drafted while JFK was in office and gives people of all races the same rights, including voting rights, access to education and access to public facilities. However, he faces strong opposition to the bill, especially from within his own party. He will have to use all his political will and cunning to get it through. Written by grantss

Goofs

When President Johnson is on the telephone with J. Edgar Hoover he makes repeated references to Alan Dulles as head of the CIA. Dulles had actually been fired by President Kennedy in 1961 and replaced by John McCone who served in that role until he resigned in 1965. See more »

Quotes

Lyndon B. Johnson: Clausewitz said "Politics is war by other means."... Bullshit. Politics is War... Period. You know how you win a campaign, by not losing it. I only lost one election my whole life. The son of a bitch stole it from me in the final seconds with a handful of fake votes, I will carry the pain of that with me to my dying day. But I'll tell you what, nobody will ever do me that way again, It'll be some other way.

More well done than enjoyable.

In person LBJ was simply not a very likable guy. I do think it was pretty historically accurate. Mostly about the Civil Rights struggles of 1963 and 1964. It's just not that much fun to watch the political sausage being made. I don't think LBJ is sugar-coated by this portrayal; if anything I doubt he was as paranoid as he is portrayed here.
