    There was an awesome sweeping in of the opposition party when Lincoln was in office during the first midterm election.  Lincoln was accused of every kind of incompetence, disloyalty (to the cause of black disenfranchisment), disloyalty again (to the cause of emancipation), etc.  He also was prone to self evaluation and self correction.  I am not sure in the light of the passage of time we would consider him to have been "all rhetoric".  

    Speaking for the voiceless to my mind is the gift of our current president.  I know he has done that for me.
