Summary
"This book details the roles McCormack played in the creation of Social Security and the passage of Lend-Lease, Medicare and Medicaid as well as the secret funding of the atomic bomb. The book ties together relationships, showing how this suave and secretive politician contributed to the selection of his "poker pal" Harry Truman as vice president in 1944 and in 1960, as JFK's named "floor manager," helped orchestrate Lyndon Johnson acceptance of JFK's vice presidential invitation. This groundbreaking research examines the machinations of Congress, and also takes a close look at a critical time in US history, as American erupted with conflicts over civil rights and the Vietnam War."--
