He wasn't considered the worse. Actually, he was a man who had many connections in Congress,knew where the bodies were buried, and was very powerful in his way. He and Kennedy didn't like each other, but Johnson was very competent for his role. He held the country together in a very bad time and took to steps needed when they were required. He did get mired down in Vietnam, but he was the 3 president to be engaged in the problems there. He had to contend with the problem he inherited.

Why was President Andrew Johnson's presidency riddled with problems?

Andrew Johnson had been vice President under Lincoln, and he became President only because of the assassination of Lincoln. Even though this was exactly what the constitution required, many people at the time felt that Johnson did not have the right to become President, and resented him. This was particularly true because Johnson was from the South. It almost seemed like a final coup d'etat by the Confederacy, for Johnson to become President.
