The country, hypnotized byrepparttar catafalque, was unaware of any conflict withinrepparttar 149156 government. {Ask yourself how aware this reporter was.} It was virtually impossible to think beyond yesterday's death andrepparttar 149157 coming funeral. Hugh Sidey argued (in vain) that Time should hold its cover portrait ofrepparttar 149158 new Chief Executive for another week's issue because 'Nobody is interested in Johnson yet.' Not many were. Nevertheless, depicting his mood during his first full day in office is a matter of intrinsic interest. A precise delineation is elusive. The man's chameleon nature had never been more evident. {Or more important if you buy into his part inrepparttar 149159 takeover of state that was engineered by CIA, Pentagon, Armaments, Mafia and other related groups who were flabbergasted at JFK's willingness to act according to his own conscience. Remember also that this wasrepparttar 149160 first Catholic in office ofrepparttar 149161 President and thatrepparttar 149162 media was greatly more willing to report what their owners were telling them to do as we showed inrepparttar 149163 first world war and creation ofrepparttar 149164 Fed.} There had never been so many Lyndon Johnsons. It was almost as though a score of identical Texans were holed up backstage in Room 274, each withrepparttar 149165 same physiogamy and drawl, yet each with his own disposition, ideology, sense of timing, and objectives. George Reedy stepped in, and Lyndonrepparttar 149166 clairvoyant appeared. 'Everything was chaotic,' Reedy said afterward. 'Onlyrepparttar 149167 President knew what he was doing.' Galbraith was announced and greeted byrepparttar 149168 left-of-center champion. 'I want to come down very hard on civil rights,' Johnson told him, 'not because Kennedy was for it but because 'I' am for it. Keep in mind that I want a liberal policy because I'm a Roosevelt Democrat.' Averell Harriman {Of Brown Brothers, Harriman who funded Hitler and for whom Prescott Bush worked. This Bush later introduced Nixon torepparttar 149169 political scene.} arrived with his Edwardian gait, and Lyndon said: 'You know I've always thought of you as one of my oldest and best friends in Washington.'

The President was exploiting his great gift for exposing this or that facet of his character so that each visitor would leave with a feeling of warmth and reassurance. Sincerepparttar 149170 visitors entered one at a time, his success was almost universal. The out-and-out loyalists, while remaining distrustful of colleagues who had raced to 274, saw a Lyndon so humble, so shattered by his own anguish, that even Sorensen and Schlesinger were impressed; to David Ormsby-Gore this Lyndon said brokenly, 'If my family took a vote on whether or not I'd stay, there'd be three votes for quitting right away--and maybe four.' That Lyndon vanished, and another appeared, shrewdly advising O'Brien on a technical point of parliamentary procedure. There is no way to reconcilerepparttar 149171 various members ofrepparttar 149172 flexible Presidential cast. The fact is that each played his part superbly and richly deserves applause. Onlyrepparttar 149173 naive would be offended byrepparttar 149174 variety; John Kennedy would have been engrossed by it. Despiterepparttar 149175 accuracy of Sidey's judgment, Johnson was a fascinating man that Saturday. One must merely recognize thatrepparttar 149176 man was many men.

he fenced sharply withrepparttar 149177 soft-spoken but immovable Nick Katzenbach over whetherrepparttar 149178 assassination should be investigated-by a federal or state board of inquiry; he appliedrepparttar 149179 Johnsonian prod to J. Edgar Hoover, who by now was dispatching fleets of agents to Love Field; {You might ask how Lee Harvey Oswald succeeded in getting past allrepparttar 149180 state and Federal authorities who should have allowed him to live. You might ask how he was allowed to get in plain view and available to Jack Ruby so that this known cancer victim who would never live to testify fairly, could shoot him. You might have a lot of questions that come fromrepparttar 149181 numerous books and reports that are available.} he proclaimed Monday a day of official mourning;" (1)
