This movie portrayed that and my only issue was that this should have been longer. His accomplishments domestically were great. His downfall was his ego and his not wanting to be the first President to lose a war and that was Viet Nam. His nemesis. The movie doesn't touch that at all. You can only pack so much in with 90 minutes. The rivalry with RFK was epic and was shown as such. LBJ was the usurper yet he made it his mission to get the bills stuck in Congress passed without looking for praise for himself but in JFK's memory. A complicated man who did some truly great things that last until today. IMO this should have been a mini series so we could see the total legacy of LBJ as all of it was not so nice. All in all I liked this movie.
