4 reasons Abraham Lincoln wouldn't win the GOP nomination in 2012 - CSMonitor:
1. Lincoln 'invented' income tax
2. He didn't advertise his faith
3. He wasn't a looker
4. He tended toward moderate positions and long, complex arguments

A well reasoned argument is like a diamond: impervious to corruption and crystal clear - and infinitely rarer.

Here, as elsewhere, people are outraged at what feels like a rigged game -- an economy that won't respond, a democracy that won't listen, and a financial sector that holds all the cards. - Robert Reich

He also did something to benefit poor black folks, at the expense of rich, white plantation owners. And not one of those "businessmen" were compensated for the seizure of their property!
