Obama and Lincoln as writers, leaders amid crisis

If you love to write and/or read, the following Wall Street Journal article on the power of literature in the White House -- with politicians as the authors -- is a most informative and exciting prologue on what to expect and not expect from President Barack Obama.

Another son of Illinois who made it to the White House, Abraham Lincoln, is the favorite of Obama. And the article's author stacks one against the other in a no-nonsense piece that makes you proud to be an American while raising one's respect for Lincoln as the largest historical figure in the nation next to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. -- another great writer.

I've told you enough. Here's the article that will get you thinking about Obama, Lincoln and the power of the written word amid crisis such as the economic one now.
