Part of Rick Perlstein’s ode to Hubert Humphrey:

Was Humphrey really as hawkish as all that? Johnson didn’t think so; he actually preferred that Nixon win the election. He didn’t trust Humphrey to hold firm on the war.

Hadn’t read that before, but then I have yet to finish Nixonland. Certainly has some implications for interpretations of Johnson that suggest he understood the war as necessary evil to achieve his domestic priorities.
