Food, Lincoln and The Inauguration
But back to the Lincoln comparisons: there are so many! It's astonishing. Has any incoming president ever been compared so much to one of his predecessors? No other names come to mind. If you type "Obama Lincoln" into eBay's search engine it brings up a little over 80 results of people trying to capitalize on the fever. There's a weirdly dark and impressionistic double portrait of Lincoln and the President Elect arm-and-arm, a cartoon of the two men trading respect-knuckles, a pin of Lincoln wearing an Obama campaign shirt and even a pocket watch dial with head shots of the two Illinois politicians. The high (low) point of all this merchandise are the dozens of conflated Lincoln/Obama portraits by pop artist s on eBay available both in black and white and Worholian technicolor. If all these comparisons are as accurate as they are voluminous, we're in for a legendary—if not prosperous—eight years ahead.
