Lincoln-Douglas Debates: More than just slavery or racial equality

Barrack Obama is the second U.S. president from Illinois. The first was Abraham Lincoln, who was elected in 1860 and who was assassinated in 1865, shortly after his reelection. Obama has said that he is a great admirer of Lincoln, and that he fashioned his political persona and election campaign after him. As Lincoln is known to the world as The Great Emancipator, it is certainly appropriate that Obama, the first African-American president, should be inaugurated in the same year that the world celebrates the Feb. 12 bicentennial of Lincoln’s birth.
