Lyndon Johnson's experience leading the U.S. Senate ultimately made him one of the most consequential Accidental Presidents in history.  When he took over for JFK, he made it his mission to get more done with his limited time in office, than anyone thought possible.  But at the same time, he sunk deeper and deeper into the quagmire of Vietnam, a tragedy that became part of his complicated legacy.
Mark Updegrove, President & CEO of the LBJ Foundation, helps us dive into the extraordinary perseverance of POTUS 36.
