does "right people"here mean "rightest",or just"correct?" Had the occasion been less grave, Lyndon Johnson's departure from Parkland Hospital might be called convulsive. It resembled one of those Chaplinesque farewells in which the only people who wind up on the mobbed train are those who have come down to see their friends off. Some of the right people left Parkland, but others didn't, and the exodus was accompanied by episodes of disorder, hubbub, and unexpected bungling. "Suddenly," said Henry Gonzalez, "I saw the might and power of die United States Government in complete confusion."

He's comparing it to a comedy film where the wrong people end up on the train and the people who are supposed to go on the train are still on the platform, so the "right people" who left Parkland are the ones whom they want to leave.
