Lyndon Johnson’s Victory

The real winner of the 2008 Presidential election is Lyndon Johnson, who had the courage 44 years ago to promote the Civil Rights Act of 1964 through Congress after the longest lasting filibuster in American history.

No one in their wildest dreams could have imagined back then that we would overcome the race issue enough so as to elect an African American President less than half a century after the major struggle that Lyndon Johnson waged to overcome the prejudices of the section he was brought up in and rose to office  from to national power.

If Lyndon Johnson was alive today, he would be very proud of what has occurred and we owe him a debt of gratitude for his contribution to the betterment of America!
