Chapter Two LBJ IN THE HOUSE AND SENATE Donald A. Ritchie Evaluations of Lyndon B. Johnson’s presidency have credited some of his greatest successes and failures to his earlier experiences in Congress.

While these events made action on civil rights imperative, Caro also evaluated Johnson’s personal compassion for those oppressed by racial prejudice, and his own driving ambition that made it essential for him to score a legislative victory on this emotional and divisive issue. The civil rights debate best illustrated Johnson’s legislative agility as he bobbed and weaved against both of the opposing sides, aiming to prevent a filibuster and craft a consensus. Johnson’s moment of insight occurred during an impasse over the bill when he saw New Mexico Senator Clinton Anderson, a liberal supporter of civil rights, strike out the entire Title III of the bill, which made racial segregation illegal in any public place, from schools to parks and restaurants.
