  •  and the debt ceiling (3+ / 0-)

    Lincoln's legality was questionable, but his rightness was indisputable. Obama I hope will apply that lesson to the debt ceiling. It's constitutionality is questionable, and refusing to abide by it would also be constitutionality questionable, but getting rid of it is so clearly the right thing to do, that just the act might have its own momentum. Not on the scale of the Emancipation Proclamation of course, but maybe an applicable lesson.
