Last night in the middle of blogging the Democratic Sit-in, Driftglass came across this interview with Bryan Cranston back when he was on Broadway in "All The Way," a dramatization of the life of LBJ in 1963-4. The Youtube was at this minute, and I looked from C-Span on the tee vee to DG's computer, and said, yep, we're back to taking Lyndon's advice, and that's tomorrow night's open thread.

The movie version of "All The Way" is still being aired this summer on HBO and is not to be missed. (And yeah, Vietnam isn't the main part of this movie, though it does appear as an issue.)

Oh, and it's Lyndon Johnson. Viewer discretion for language.

Open thread below....

Can you help us out?
