Description

Lyndon B. Johnson tried and failed to win the Democratic presidential nomination in 1960. Instead, he was chosen as a running mate by the man who beat him: John F. Kennedy. In this edition of Meet the Press, Senator Johnson circumspectly discusses aspects of the Kennedy/Johnson presidential platform as he states his views on the civil rights movement, Vice President Richard Nixon, the federal budget under the Eisenhower administration, and whether Senator Kennedy is justly called an "apostle of appeasement" in foreign policy. Introduced by Tim Russert.
