Happy Birthday Lincoln, Obama Style

Today is the 199th anniversary of President Abraham Lincoln’s birth. Our country has moved forward a tremendous amount since Honest Abe’s birthday. With his Emancipation Proclamation he made way for history to continue to be made by freeing most of the slaves in the United States. Therefore, it can’t be anything but fitting that today could also be a big turning point in the race for the Democratic Nominee for the President of the United States. If Obama sweeps the Potomac races this evening, it is possible he will evoke Lincoln in his victory speeches. And just think, how fitting would it be if Obama was in the office on the 200th anniversary of Lincoln’s birthday. The circle may be complete.
