Lincoln had the good of the country at heart. Obama does not. He's only concerned with ideology.

Obama is no Lincoln.

I disagree with the above comments. I believe President Obama does have many of the same qualities as Lincoln, and I am hopeful therefore. I saw the same elements in tis book described by this reviewer.

Why do we need to compare Obama and Lincoln? Different times altogether and two different people. I am thoroughly enjoying Team of Rivals and have not felt the need to compare these two men. I do see how the political struggles that we real in the time of Lincoln are timeless struggles.

I think history will show that President Obama is one of the greatest of the American presidents.

I agree with you, Mary.

You're all drinking the kool aid. He is by far the worst president of my lifetime and that includes Jimmy Carter and LBJ.

I completely disagree with Obama being one of the worst presidents. Granted, you did say of your lifetime, but still. However, I don't think he'll go down as one of the best. I think he's good though. It will be interesting to see how time measures him. I can definitely see where there can be some comparisons drawn between Obama's presidency and Lincoln's. I feel they are very clear. On a little bit of a tangent, I'm loving the book!

I am from India so cannot comment on American Presidents. But , in my opinion, Abe Lincoln is much more than a nere President...He is one of the foremost humans to walk on earth. He was on a higher plane than us that is why he could transcend the petty human fralities of Material staus Power and money. Truly, he was driven by a higher goal like Buddha.. to render everlasting service to fellow humans. He achieved it .
