Its hard to conceive anyone else being in his seat and keeping the union together.

I guess that if you believe we're all better off because the union was preserved, you think Lincoln a hero, and if you don't, you think him a tyrant.

Remember, he once said, "If I could preserve the union and avert the war by freeing ALL of the slaves, I would do it. If I could preserve it by freeing SOME of the slaves, I would do that. And if I could preserve it by freeing NONE of the slaves, I would do that also."

I apologize, that's not an exact quote, but I think I'm pretty close.
