The best Republican president since Lincoln

Who is it? It may be Barack Obama. (It’s certainly seeming that way….) This brings to mind the quote from Harry Truman:

“If it’s a choice between a genuine Republican, and a Republican in Democratic clothing, the people will choose the genuine article, every time; that is, they will take a Republican before they will a phony Democrat, and I don’t want any phony Democratic candidates in this campaign.” Address at the National Convention Banquet of the Americans for Democratic Action, 17 May 1952
