Lincoln to Bush parallels

>> Wednesday, October 20, 2004

Liberating Iraq has a post going thru historical parallels between the Lincoln v. McClellan campaign and the Bush v. Kerry one. It's a long post, but worth your consideration.

Thanks for linking to my post about the Lincoln/1864 and Bush/2004 parallels.

It seems history does repeat itself. one last detail not mentioned in my article - in 1864, Lincoln relied on the military vote for his margin of victory. Polls today show the military going for Bush by 3 to 1, and leading strongly among veterans. The attempts by PA Gov Rendell to discount military ballots is another parallel.

I love history. Not much is new today...communications and travel are faster, but we have the same issues.
