The marriage that made a president

Betty Boyd Carroli, in her book Lady Bird and Lyndon—The Hidden Story of a Marriage that Made a President, concludes that Lyndon never would have succeeded as a senator or made it to the White House without the help of Lady Bird.

Lady Bird Johnson was “an invaluable asset who served as sounding board, financial manager, network builder and resolver of family problems,” Carroli says. “Only she could talk him out of his depressed funks and keep him moving.”

She was one of the many wives who made a difference in their husband’s life and made a significant contribution to the country by helping her husband. But, she also left her own legacy through her efforts to protect the nation’s wildflowers.
