Those who have studied or lived through the election of 1964 will recall that some people supported Johnson because they feared that Goldwater would take the US into Vietnam.
That was a realistic fear.  Voting for Johnson was a way of keeping Goldwater from the presidency.  But it was not a good way of keeping the US out of Vietnam.

We have good reason to fear what Trump would do in the presidency.  But do we have any idea what Clinton would do?
