    a peice ...an excerpt from a trending article. About the LBJ tapes. Compelling evidence. Really shows the SIT. Palin says "lipstick"

    On the White House tapes we learn that Johnson wanted to know from Daley how many delegates would support his candidacy. LBJ only wanted to get back into the race if Daley could guarantee the party would fall in line behind him.

    They also discussed whether the president's helicopter, Marine One, could land on top of the Hilton Hotel to avoid the anti-war protesters.

    Daley assured him enough delegates would support his nomination but the plan was shelved after the Secret Service warned the president they could not guarantee his safety.

    The idea that Johnson might have been the candidate, and not Hubert Humphrey, is just one of the many secrets contained on the White House tapes.

    They also shed light on a scandal that, if it had been known at the time, would have sunk the candidacy of Republican presidential nominee, Richard Nixon.

    By the time of the election in November 1968, LBJ had evidence Nixon had sabotaged the Vietnam war peace talks - or, as he put it, that Nixon was guilty of treason and had "blood on his hands".

    The BBC's former Washington correspondent Charles Wheeler learned of this in 1994 and conducted a series of interviews with key Johnson staff, such as defence secretary Clark Clifford, and national security adviser Walt Rostow.

    We now know...
    After the Viet Cong's Tet offensive, White House doves persuaded Johnson to end the war
    Johnson loathed Senator Bobby Kennedy but the tapes show he was genuinely devastated by his assassination
    He feared vice-president Hubert Humphrey would go soft on Vietnam if elected president
    The BBC's Charles Wheeler would have been under FBI surveillance when he met administration officials in 1968
    In 1971 Nixon made huge efforts to find a file containing everything Johnson knew in 1968 about Nixon's skulduggery
    But by the time the tapes were declassified in 2008 all the main protagonists had died, including Wheeler.

    Now, for the first time, the whole story can be told.
