Clinton on LBJ

Bill Clinton reviews Robert Caro's Passage of Power:

"In sparkling detail, Caro shows the new president's genius for getting to people -- friends, foes and everyone in between -- and how he used it to achieve his goals... He knew just how to get to you, and he was relentless in doing it..."

"Even when we parted company over the Vietnam War, I never hated L.B.J. the way many young people of my generation came to. I couldn't. What he did to advance civil rights and equal opportunity was too important. I remain grateful to him. L.B.J. got to me, and after all these years, he still does. With this fascinating and meticulous account of how and why he did it, Robert Caro has once again done America a great service."
