This is an awful analogy. I hope you are trolling.

I think that he's trying to be the Millenial version of Abbie Hoffman, or maybe that's Adam Kokesh.

Barring something disastrous, Obama will not even be as remotely unpopular with the Democratic Party as LBJ was in 1968.

Maybe 2008 was a better analogy only with the parties flipped somewhat. John McCain was a good analogy for Hubert Humphrey, once considered a man of integrity who by the time he finally got his parties nomination was seen as a shadow of his former self and too closely associated with an unpopular war and an unpopular president from Texas.

I thought that was pretty apt also.

Wow your overall analysis turned out to be correct, though it was Trump who was Richard Nixon and RFK of 16 didnt run but everything else is basically spot on
