    @I hope so: what is the point of becoming unified over policies that are driving us into oblivion? Is unity more important than being right?

    @Sonya: you know what? Lincoln deserved it then, he deserves it today.

    I hope so. We don't need this type of on-going rancor if we really want to be a unified nation again someday.

    I note that no one has said that Pres. Bush's presidency will be looked back on with revere and admiration, or that he will merit a place on Rushmore. The gov't debt and missteps in Iraq will not allow that. But nor will he be looked back on, decades from now, as the worst president in history like some want to think.

    There once was another president who was very unpopular. He led the nation into another unpopular war. More than 600,000 Americans died in the war. He was ridiculed, reviled, called a hick and a liar. His own cabinet was uncooperative with him. His name? Abraham Lincoln.
