Screen shot 2016-03-13 at 1.38.16 PMIn 1964, when LBJ was running against Barry Goldwater (dramatized in the current DTC production All the Way), his campaign ran the following ad — four minutes in length, just one longshot of a man talking to the camera. It’s an amazing relic from our political past, and quite effective to me. Listen to the words, though. He might as well be talking about Donald Trump or Canadian-born Rafael Ted Cruz.
