Question of the Day
Yesterday's question of the day asked: Although the accuracy of this account has been questioned, during the Vietnam War, President Lyndon Johnson is alleged by some to have said, "If I've lost [blank], I've lost Middle America." Fill in the blank: who was the news anchor whose opinion was so important to Johnson? That would be none other than the esteemed, late Walter Cronkite!
