When Clare Boothe Luce asked Lyndon Johnson why he agreed to be US Vice President, he told her that his research showed that 6 out of 33 of US Presidents had achieved office without being elected, and that “I’m a gambling man.” Mark Gorton adds that "a study of LBJ’s history shows that he was anything but a gambling man. In fact, LBJ was a man who left nothing to chance. Most likely, LBJ planned to kill JFK from the moment he considered becoming vice president."
