Walter Cronkite announcing the death of one of our strongest and most effective presidents as far as what he was able to get passed in Congress and the amount of people who the legislation benefited. Especially as it dealt with civil rights, but Medicare as well and a President who was always fighting to improve the lives of people who were struggling. Now of course you can argue about a lot of that legislation and what it actually did for people. But he was always trying to do the right thing for people who struggle. Which is a lot more than a lot of other presidents have done.
