Much has been said as to Obama's wisdom in appointing a "cabinet of rivals" similar in nature to that of Lincoln's.
Most seem to think that this is a good thing.
I remind these optimists that Lincoln waged war against what he considered his own country, and left 3/4 of a million dead, and many more permanently injured and/or destitute.
Can we destroy this country?
"Yes we can! Yes we can! Yes we can!"--Barack Obama.
