Speaking as part of a panel about presidential books during Sunday’s Face the Nation, author Doris Kearns Goodwin couldn’t help but devote a few moments of her time to heaping praise on the “ambitious” man who she first worked for in politics in then-President Lyndon B. Johnson from the 1960's. 

Kearns Goodwin interjected during the panel’s conversation to first remark that most of the men and women who seek the Oval Office are “all ambitious when they run for president, but is their ambition doubled” because it should be asked whether or not they want to see through “something that will stand the test of time” for the benefit of “the people.”
