Would Someone please post the Bobby Baker thread on the 1960 Demo convention?

A few weeks ago someone posted Bobby Baker's version of the machinations at the 1960 Democratic convention; Baker stated that Averell Harriman was asking JFK to put Lyndon Johnson on the 1960 ticket as VP.

Could someone post that Baker thread again or direct to the thread where it was cut and pasted into?

One of my themes is the close ties of Lyndon Johnson and his Texas oil men Clint Murchison, Sr. and H.L. Hunt to the PEAK of post WWII US intelligence. Averell Harriman, Skull and Bones, longtime diplomat, certainly fits in that category. He was also a business partner with Prescott Bush, the father of George Herbert Walker Bush, who I also think was involved in the JFK assassination.

So where is that Bobby Baker link on the 1960 Democratic convention?

Thanks in advance.

Thank-you, John. Someone recently within the past month or so post inside a thread - Bobby Baker's account of Averell Harriman urging John Kennedy to put Lyndon Johnson as VP on the ticket. Does someone remember what thread that "cut and paste" is on? It is probably from a book or oral history.

I have Bobby Baker's book Wheeling and Dealing and it is not in there in Chapter 9 which is titled "Fear and Loathing in Los Angeles" which is Baker's account of the 1960 Democratic convention and how Johnson got put on it.

Baker does not have a lot of credibility with me on that matter; I think he is covering up the intimidation and strong arm tactics that LBJ and Sam Rayburn used on John Kennedy in order to get LBJ on the ticket as VP.

Having said that I would like to find again (it is in some Education Forum thread) where Bobby Baker said Averell Harriman was for LBJ as VP.
