We can all give thanks to God, of course, that Mr. Obama's term in office has not been cut short, as Lincoln's was, by a heinous act of political violence.
A thought to ponder on: Obama has now been in office longer than Abraham Lincoln.

Over the last few hundred years, humanity, as a whole, has gotten taller. That doesn?t mean every single person now is taller than every single person then. At 6?4?, Abraham Lincoln towered over almost everyone back in the early-to-mid 1800s. Today, he?d be considered tall too. The difference is that he wouldn?t be considered unusually so.
