    but Lincoln was a movement in the making for at least a decade.  He was abolitionism on the political stage.  The Lincoln/Douglas debates were much much more substantial than any American politico contribution to the Iraq war debate.  The Lincoln/Douglas debates, remember, were quite a time before Lincoln was elected president- it was a Senate race.

      ... for a while also

      ball got rolling when Howard Dean lit a fire with a speech in California in the winter of 2003. (there were already sparkin' embers on the web.)

      no, it wasn't a whole decade ... but information moves faster now ...

        dailykos, the anti-war movement, the anti-corporatist movement is not directly related to the actions or the political career of Barrack Obama.  He is along for the ride, but he is not its leader in any way similar to the way Lincoln took the reins- Lincoln was integral to founding an entire political party.  

        My comment was to the comparison being made between Obama and Lincoln.

          DKos is hardly an expression of the entire movement.

          Only ~150K reg'd users here.

          Obama has over a million online contributors.

          Best step back a bit so you can see the forest, friend.
