One can't help but wonder how many books have been written about ol' Abe.

We certainly need more men of his stature today!

He was a cool dude. Too bad politics is not what it used to be.

We surely could use some like him in Washington today! Such an amazing and incredible man. And, yep, that's exactly how old I feel today, too!

He had such a chiselled face - could have been a movie star in another era, though that wuld have wasted his mind.

I'd need one of those. It's been so long since I read about American history.
