Christmas or Politics? Politics or Christmas?

Oh, screw it: politics.

A largely unexplored aspect of the President's Troika-of-Greatness is his inclusion of Johnson. To speak plainly, Johnson pops into his head because of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. This comes naturally to Mr. Obama, whose deck is stacked with 52 Race Cards.

But it ignores the fact that Johnson's out-sized ego dragged the United States into its most disastrous military adventure, while at the same time he was unable to formulate or articulate achievable military goals, or provide competent management of that war.

Mr. Obama thus suggests that he's not quite yet scaled the heights occupied by America's most megamaniacally incompetent one-term president.  But he's giving it a go.
