    The self imposed isolation that Lyndon Johnson created to insulate himself from the critics of his policy in Vietnam, and the sycophants that he surrounded himself with as a consequence, is explored in depth and it is shockingly relevant to the Bush White House and G.W.'s disconnect from alternate points of view. For those who do not believe the analogy between Vietnam and Iraq is credible, reading this book will expose multiple parallels that are chilling and relevant. Like Doris Kearns, I was a fan of Johnson with the exception of his Vietnam policy and, also like her, I was saddened by the legacy that he left behind.
    Truly, it seems, we are doomed to repeat our mistakes (at least whenever we put someone from Texas into the White House).
