This clip from the CBS Evening News features Douglas Brinkley, a
history professor at Rice University, and Harold Holzer, the author of
Lincoln: President-Elect, discussing the similarities between
Abraham Lincoln and Barack Obama. Both are different men in very
different eras but, Brinkley points out, “as long as Obama can be
mentioned in the same breath with Lincoln… he’s doing well on the
public relations front.”
