Johnson was a sleezebag who cheated on his wife and he's lucky his "fully exposed(literally, probably in front of Women too)" approach to the Whitehouse Press fucked things up for the next President who pushed way too hard back the other way, acted stupid with Watergate, got caught and had to resign.
You vote for the party that privately glorifies abnormal physically abusive behaviour towards Women while publically opposing it.
Even JFK had issues with his behaviour towards women(though he clearly loved Jackie very much, still slept around on her anyway).....
Neither Johnson, Clinton or Kennedy have ever been publicly criticized and chastised by serving Democrats, or modern Democratic historians, for their behaviour towards members of the other sex(although Kennedy can be excused because what happened to him was a tragedy).
It's usually been swept under the rug in favour of pretending all three men were Democrat Saints....
I was personally relieved Obama, to his credit, appears to have been the only Democratic President since 1950 not to done any of the following:
Not slept around on his wife
Not been connect to the Mafia or any other nefarious underworld group
Not exposed himself fully to the press
Not gone skinny dipping in the Whitehouse Pool with the Press
Not lied too often, and I don't think he's ever delibrately lied while in office, others may disagree
Not gotten publically Drunk notably often
Not to have gone to the Cinema once every 2-3 days(even if it was his own personal Cinema, and he could do whatever he wanted, Carter was addicted... No wonder he lost after the first term, too busy watching movies! If he was addicted to movies he was probably also a TV addict and watched heaps)
Not raped a woman then bit her lip, whoops I mean several women
Not had sexual relations with that woman
.... By default he may have been the "cleanest" Democratic President since Truman.
