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.
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.
