Chapter 1: It’s Not Who You Know; It’s Who You Get to Know
This chapter emphasizes the importance of one on one conversation. Lyndon B. Johnson was an expert at this strategy called “retail politics.” It is approaching a person one at a time because it makes a relationship and bond grow by one individual at a time.

Acting like a winner can give you positivity and motivation you need to actually win. Bill Clinton acted like a winner his entire campaign and ended up being president. Every problem can be made into a joke and turned around into an affirmative direction. By hanging a lantern on your problem, you can then utilize a spin. Nixon and his illegal trust situation was happening, he gave a famous speech called “Checkers.” He talked on his behalf about his personal worth (putting a lantern on your problems) and then “spinning” it with saying all politicians should give a list of their assets.
Chapter 12: “The Press Is the Enemy” Be careful who you talk to because you never know who is going to hear.

Especially if you talk to the media because the media was slur your words and make up an entire different story than you told them. It is important to be professional and clear when speaking to the media. It could ruin your reputation and make you look very bad.

One way Johnson does this is by building up his trust with congress as well as his people through promising appeals. Johnson often uses “we” in most of his speech to prove to the citizens that it is not just them in the fight, but that he is providing assistance to reach their intentions. He continues to build that trust throughout his speech by putting himself as a human as well, not just as the leader of the country. Since Johnson is a white man who is trying to fight for African American rights during that era, it is quite hard to do so considering whites once hated blacks. This being said, it's Johnson's duty to enforce that trust to make the African Americans believe he is attempting to better their lives.
