What do you folks think about the Lincoln references and similarities in Obama's speeches, etc? He obviously is much enamored of the man--rightly so. There are other things as well--using the Lincoln Bible as the inaguration Bible, the Lincoln carriage to be used in the inaugural parade. While I am an Obama backer, I am anxious for him to "strike out on his own" without using Lincoln as a touchpoint so often. And I have to admit, though I think he can do so, Obama also needs to begin to prove he deserves to be equated with Lincoln. Those are might big shoes to fill, and I'm interested in seeing how he does it.

Just my two cents' worth.  Your thoughts?

Pam
