    Obama is a decent enough fellow, but comparing him to Lincoln at this point?   Please.

    You do him no favors by doing so.

    The times and challenges are not remotely comparable, and while I have great respect for Obama and the work he has done, he has yet to show me the serious courage of even taking on a single entrenched interest, let alone doing anything like Lincoln did.

    And on a literary basis, Lincoln was a vastly better writer- far more compact and evocative than anything yet heard from Obama, who is the best orator of our current time....
