  •  RFK was still AG in '64, and he played a major (2+ / 0-)

    role in getting Public Accomodations passed.  MLK later noted RFK's sad and somewhat lost look at the signing ceremony.  I'm not sure how big of a role RFK played in getting Voting Rights past a filibuster.

    As an obvious admirer of RFK, I'll always consider it tragic that he and LBJ were such deep personal enemies.  Their blood feud hurt the party and the country.

    While I wouldn't mind having RFK get a plug tonight, his family had their moment in the spotlight on Monday.

    Some men see things as they are and ask why. I see things that never were and ask why not?
