Interview with Joseph Rauh
QUESTION 17
INTERVIEWER:

HUBERT HUMPHREY. A MAN WHO HAD, DESPERATELY WANTS THE VICE PRESIDENCY AND THE PRESIDENCY. AND LYNDON HAS ESSENTIALLY TOLD HIM WHAT HE HAS TO DO TO HAVE IT.

Joseph Rauh:

Yes, but Hubert would never use strong-arm tactics. Hubert uh, knew this was—one night at the Convention in ‘64, Hubert said to me, "I'm so tired of this, I don't even know if I want to be Vice President." He would have preferred not to be Vice President than to ask me to do something wrong for him. And that… that's why I still argue for—he's a great man. I disagreed with him 100 percent on Vietnam, but he was a great man.
