The only thing I see that is historic is that, for the first time in the history of our country, we have settled the mantle of leadership on a person not born in the United States. In 2012, I want Arnold Schwarzenegger as president. He has as much right to occupy the White House as Osama,I mean Obama does. I thought it was interesting that Obama compared himself to Lincoln. I don't think any two things are more polar opposites than those two. I heard several references to the Emancipation Proclamation. It amazes me that a country as well-educated as the United States still has so many people that repeat the old saw that Lincoln freed the slaves. BS! The proclamation was a brilliant political move, but it did not actually free one slave. Even a cursory reading of that document reveals that Lincoln ordered that all slaves being held in states in opposition to the Uinion were free. I am sure that Jefferson Davis snapped is fingers and said, "Sure thing, Mr. Lincoln, we will take care of that right away." The Confederate States of America was not under the leadership of Abraham Lincoln, and Davis probably told Lincoln to go pee up a rope. If I were a president-elect, I would be leery of comparing myself to Lincoln. It is history, not a president's contamporaries that determines the greatness of a president. Lincoln, had they had popularity polls as we do today, would have had a very low rating. He was hated by everyone in the confederate states, as well as many in the North, blamed as being responsible for the Civil War. He was hated for suspending habeas corpus. Northern slave holders (yes, Virginia, there were slaves in Unnion states,)feared that Lincoln would extend his proclamation to northern states. History has shown Lincoln to be arguably our greatest president. People have been throwing mud at George Bush since before he was even elected, but some of us believe history will show him to be a better president than he is given credit for. All those people who bad-mouthed president Bush have four years of Obamato let people see what a lousy president may really be like.
    It is kind of like Hoover is thought of as such a bad president and some how to blame for the depression when in truth it was Wilson who signed into law the Federal Reserve Act that had more to do with the destruction of our economy and the start of the depression. Then along comes this "knight" FDR to get us out of our economic problems and in turn propel us head long into socialism. The more things change the more they stay the same.
