    Reaching for Glory lets us eavesdrop on LBJ's private, often tortured thoughts during the most crucial year of his presidency - when his dreams of being hailed as the equal of Abraham Lincoln and Franklin Roosevelt were destroyed by the war in Vietnam. These original recordings, presented side by side with the stories behind them, offer unprecedented insight into the Johnson presidency.

    Jonah says: "An intimate glimpse into history"
    "The Real LBJ"
    Overall

    This is the real LBJ the fully unvarnashed Johnson. You hear him planning for the election. You hear his concerns after the Kennedy assassination and his private conversations with Jackie. LadyBird is seen in her real self as well. She could talk with the President like no other. She was a full and real adviser. You hear Johnson's treatment of friends and enemies. You here his hatred of Bobby and his planning against him. You hear him ordering pants from a taylor and how he wants the zipper so it does not bother his privates, and you hear him poor mouthing a beautician in NYC so he will not have to pay him to fly to DC and do his women. Its a great 6 + hours.
