The Weight of a Presidency

Lincoln- June, 1861
He had been President for 4 months
and his country had been at war for 3 of them

Lincoln- April 11, 1965
4 years, 620,00 deaths
and one Emancipation later....

Lyndon Johnson- July 31, 1968
After listening to a tape
about the situation in Vietnam
Well Senators? Do you still want the Job?
