Question: Have you ever seen the movie “Lincoln” starring Daniel Day Lewis as honest Abe?

Answer: No. However I heard that Mr. Lewis' performance was stellar. No surprise. Have never known him to ever deliver a shoddy performance. He was outstanding in “The Last of the Mohicans”. Would not expect him to be any less outstanding if given an opportunity to showcase his amazing acting ability in a movie about one of the most beloved presidents of the United States. It's on my watch list.

Let's try one more Q & A.

Background Info:

What did William Henry Harrison (1841); John Tyler (1841 – 1845); Zachary Taylor (1849 – 1850); and Millard Fillmore (1850 – 1853) have in common? They were Whigs who served as American presidents. The Whigs is a U.S. political party that existed from 1834 to 1856 and then opted for dissolution or rather chose to merge with the Republican party. Under the strength of these united partisans, Abraham Lincoln was elected the first Republican POTUS.



Quora.com is a Q & A website for intelligent discussion. It was formed by a group of people who used to work for Facebook. It's a place that is – in my mind – much like the coffee shops or pubs where university students and academics hang out or similar to Mars Hill where the great minds of ancient Rome liked to gather and discuss and debate and hypothesize and theorize and philosophize and … sometimes say stuff that doesn't make any sense, according to Cicero.

One of the questions that put forward was:

Why do some people consider Abraham Lincoln
the best president?

Took a stab at responding to this question.
