Summing It Up

Have you noticed how often Obama invokes Lincoln (and how often his admirers compare the two as if they were equals)? He did it on the stump, during his victory speech election night, and again later at his first press conference. Small discussion of that here(spare me) here (excellent) and here. Best analysis:
You and I read a Lincoln biography and conclude that Lincoln was great. Obama reads the same book and concludes that he is Lincoln.
Update: What color would you like your Obamraham?
