Obama’s “Lincoln Obsession”

CNN says President-elect Obama has a “Lincoln obsession.”  They seem to applaud and love it.

We say: Presidents should do their best and let history decide the rest.  Let’s not build the Obama Monument on the Mall just yet, O.K.?

WASHINGTON (CNN) — Call it an Abraham Lincoln obsession gripping political junkies and history buffs everywhere.
In the last couple of years, several best-selling books have focused on the life and political skills of the nation’s 16th president. And one man in particular has taken a particular interest in not just reading about the Illinois politician, but also modeling himself politically after him.

That man: Barack Obama, who will be sworn in as the nation’s 44th — and first African-American — president Tuesday.

And the obsession is certainly not lost on the president-elect.

On January 10, he and his family visited the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C.

    I couldn’t help but notice the mathematical inference of Lincoln being the 16th president and Obama being the 44th. (4×4=16.) Perhaps there’s something to this “obession” after all…
