In 1948, Lyndon Johnson became a Senator when 202 people lined-up in alphabetical order in Alice, Texas and voted. And, they all owned fountain pens with green ink. (new window)

and what remains so impressive is that he really bit the hand that fed him in the end, worse than truman did even. johnson knew the future of the democrats did not rest in uppity backwards southern segregationists who helped him into power. no, that was the future for the republican party. he chose....wisely.

for giggles look up how lincoln really beat seward for the republican nomination in '60. lol honest abe.
