Subject: RE: BS: history of USA Presidential elections...
I don't think Lincoln was a very good leader either. He just happened to BE president during the USA's most disastrous war, and his side won. That would guarantee him being turned into a hero in the history books. That's how it works when you have wars and you win them. When you lose them....not so good.
