    100 years after Lincoln we saw a politician begin to evolve before our very eyes. Unfortunately he was murdered before he had the chance to become president.

    It's one of the reasons I love Bobby Kennedy, his ability, or willingness, to evolve - and the great hope I have for President Obama.

      I'm hoping it was accidental. Please explain, if it wasn't.

        I have no idea how that happened, I don't remember getting a pop up. It's fixed now. I could probably count the number of donuts I've used ever on one hand, so yes, it was definitely an accident - I intended to rec your comment. Again, my apologies.

          above.

          I posted the comment directly above after the initial "tense" reaction under the HR'd comment.

          I should have been more cognizant of a potential mistake, first.

          It was the shock... I've never seen a -1 next to a comment of mine, as I take pride in not posting HR-worthy comments.

          Thanks, and have a great day... :)

            No explanation necessary. I would've felt the same way, especially since there was nothing even remotely offensive in your comment.

            Friends?
