    Hillary Clinton gets elected President and is
    spending her first night in the White House. She has waited so long..........

    The ghost of George Washington appears, and Hillary says, "How can I best serve my country?"

    Washington says, "Never tell a lie."

    "Ouch!" Says Hillary, "I don't know about that."

    The next night, the ghost of Thomas Jeffersonappears...
    Hillary says, "How can I best serve my country?"

    Jefferson says, "Listen to the people."

    "Ohhh! I really don't want to do that."

    On the third night, the ghost of Abe Lincoln appears...
    Hillary says, "How can I best serve my country?"

    Lincoln says, "Go to the theater."

    This may be wrong of me too say, but I honestly believe if that Hitlery got ellected, someone would shoot that her before she could take office. (Dissclaimer; I am not involved in any shape, way, or form is anything like that happens.)

    I have to agree with Zep on this one... I really think she'd be assassinated before she could get in the white house. There are some hardcore male extremests out there, and there are people who are crazy and hate her enough to kill her, then there's the rest of us... who just know she screw up the country if she got in. But I'll bet she wins if she runs because too many stupid people will say "About time we got a female president!"... nothing to do with her... just her sex... sad really.

    Not if you knew the similarities between their Republican politics. Here is a quote from a book written by a professor of political science:

    "At Gettysburg Lincoln resolved that "this nation, under God," would not perish, and in his Second Inaugural he called for "firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right." How are we to understand these and other invocations of divine authority in the speeches and writings of America's most admired president? Exploring Lincoln's unique blending of religion and politics, Fornieri shows that Lincoln presented a comprehensive and compelling interpretation of political order founded upon American democratic and religious traditions."

    Sound like anybody you know?

    From Wikipedia:
    "Lincoln was a master politician who emerged as a wartime leader skilled at balancing competing considerations and at getting rival groups to work together toward a common goal."

    Even if you dislike GW, the same could be said for him during the post 9/11 period.

    "Lincoln had a lasting influence on U.S. political and social institutions. The most important may have been setting the precedent for greater centralization of powers in the federal government and a weakening of the powers of the individual state governments"

    Die hard state's rights folks would contend GW is doing the same thing.

    "He is criticised by some for issuing executive orders suspending habeas corpus, imprisoning opposing government officials, and ordering the arrest of several publishers.:

    Kind of reminds me of the arguments against GW and the Patriot Act.....

    "He is usually ranked as one of the greatest presidents, though he is criticized by some for overstepping the traditional bounds of executive power."

    I'll bet you that in a couple of decades, GW gets the same review.
