    Given the sudden nature of his presidency, Lyndon B. Johnson definitely succeeded with his presidency, enacting liberal measures that aided millions of impoverished Americans (e.g. “War on Poverty).” Also, he made incredible strides in desegregation and ending discrimination. His “Great Society” is something that we citizens can still thank him for today, from Medicare and Medicaid to the removal of quotas from certain countries for immigration. Unfortunately, he did prolong the Vietnam War, which is something that was held against him by numerous anti-war protesters; however, I believe that that was the only negative aspect about him as president.
