Plot Summary

Prodded by both personal ambition and a sincere desire to help the people of Texas, Lyndon Baines Johnson (Randy Quaid) rises from congressional staffer to member of the House of Representatives to senator through a mixture of personal charm, backroom deals and influence peddling. Aided by his equally ambitious wife, Lady Bird (Patti LuPone), Johnson then squares off against a similarly determined pair of brothers from Massachusetts, John and Bobby Kennedy (Charles Frank, James F. Kelly).
