    I was going to say that his ego was so huge that he actually thought his election would bring the country to its senses.  By all accounts he was really surprised at the secession wave because he thought he'd made himself so clear on leaving slavery alone in the states where it existed.

    As to your theory of Lincoln's theory that his election was worth the war, I would have to say that on all evidence he was right.

    Still enjoying my stimulus package.
