Time Out: LBJ Withdrawal Speech


In politics two weeks is a lifetime. One statement, policy change or perhaps a gaff can cause a campaign to freefall or another to skyrocket or at the least have a new life. Both Kennedy and McCarthy faced the man in the White House, Lyndon Baines Johnson. Gene McCarthy beat Johnson in New Hampshire. Bobby Kennedy’s campaign started with the mantra of challenging Johnson head on. Then in less than two weeks from Kennedy’s announcement for president Lyndon Johnson shocked even some of his advisors and shook the political landscape by withdrawing from the race. Patch and Natalie, who are fans of Bobby, are elated. But the competition with Johnson as a motivation for votes is gone. American Injustice- volumes 1 and 2 are available in the spring of 2022.
