"In late August 1864, the Democratic National Convention, to much cheering, pronounced Lincoln's war 'a failure.' On Sept. 4, Gen. Sherman telegraphed that 'Atlanta is ours, and fairly won.' On the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November, Lincoln won 55 percent of the votes." -Tony Blankley

Great article by Mr. Blankley...nice comparison of Lincoln and Bush. God willing this might be the case...onward to victory! I for one see many comparisons to be made to an unpopular war from 140 years ago...one that could have been much more easily referred to as a "quagmire".
