While watching TV yesterday, I heard the names "Obama" and "Lincoln" used in the same sentence a whole bunch of times. But people from all parties can draw inspiration from Lincoln. . He was a controversial Republican president who had to crush an insurgency. He was also a minor party candidate who was not on the ballot in every state, and he ended a failed, immoral economic institution that had been propped up by the federal government for decades.
