No, I fits that LBJ was a life long manic depressive with a strong streak of paranoia. When Uncle Walter deserted him, the Kennedy clan started sniping at him from all sides, and his own aids started turning their back on him, he went into a funk that he never recoverd from. LBJ didn't want to be President anymore --- in fact, he didn't even want to live any more.
Your lengthy description refutes itself. I repeat: lex parsimoniae
I repeat: lex parsimoniae
LOL. Keep repeating it, and perhaps you'll learn what it means.
