Bush and Lincoln

Newt Gingrich was, and remains, a polarizing figure. He's certainly opinionated. But he's also a bit different than he was back when he was a partisan leader. He's also really smart. His recent column, comparing the situations faced by President Bush with the Civil War faced by President Lincoln, is worth a read and worth very serious consideration.

Another comparison I have always liked is that if the presidential election has been held before Sherman took Atlanta, Lincoln may have lost the election, and our country would not longer exhist. We don't know what history will say about Iraq. Will it be a footnote or a turning point (for better or worse) in 100 years?
