That U.S. president did not have a vice president because he himself was the vice president before he came president. He became president through the death of the President before him; therefore, giving him no vice president.

LBJ didn't run in 1968 because increasing opposition to his Viernam War policy not only made him unpopular with the general public but extended to people in his own party who did very well in early primaries by running in opposition to the war.

I shall not seek, and I will not accept..." is what he said on 31 March 1968 when he announced that he was not a candidate for re-election.

The U.S. Constitution did not provide for the immediate replacement for the office of the Vice President when it is vacated until 1967. Before 1967, whenever a President or Vice President died in office or resigned, the vice presidency remained vacant until the next Inauguration Day.

President Lyndon Johnson had no Vice President from the time he took over the Presidency after the assassination of President Kennedy in 1963 until Inauguration Day in 1965 because the U.S. Constitution did not have instructions regarding the filling of vice-presidential vacancies until 1967, when the 25th Amendment was ratified. He did, however, have a Vice President during the full term to which he was elected in 1964. Pres. Johnson's running mate in the election of 1964 and his Vice President from 1965 to 1969 was Hubert H. Humphrey.
