We're electing a war president in 2008. If I can go back to Obama and Lincoln for just one second, Lincoln's "house divided" speech in 1858 was a speech saying we cannot live as a house divided on slavery. And he implicitly says well have to fight a civil war if necessary on this.

Obama's speech is a "can't we get along" speech--sort of the opposite of Lincoln. He would have been with Stephen Douglas in 1858.[Italics Mine]
