Obama, Lincoln and the U.S.
Will history repeat itself?
Since arriving on the national stage, many educated
people have compared Barack Hussein Obama to Abraham Lincoln in glowing terms.
Obama himself has an interesting, if not peculiar, love affair with the
nation’s 16th president. From quoting Lincoln to
emulating his historic activities, such as his 2007 speech onthe stepsof the Springfield Capitol and his
2009trainride to history, Obama seems to have
embraced and even assumed the persona of Lincoln.
