In 1948 in Texas, Lyndon Johnson with his trusted campaign manager John Connally, re-wrote the rulebook on modern politics. And through it all, Johnson’s wife Lady Bird looked on with worry. And then she intervened. With love, with compassion, but more than anything, with a sense of ethics that her husband often lacked, Lady Bird fought for the man she loved — and in doing so, she delivered to her state and her country a man she could be proud of: The man who eventually became the 36th President of the United States.
