I read a passage yesterday, and it was near-impossible not to overlap with it current events. It's a part of the section leading up to the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation, and deals with how Lincoln was able to keep his cabinet together despite them being divided on what he was doing.
This is the Father of the Republican Party. Times change. I don't think any following comment after the passage is necessary.
"In the end, it was Lincoln's character -- his consistent sensitivity, patience, prudence, and empathy -- that inspired and transformed every member of his official family. In this paradigm of team leadership, greatness was grounded in goodness."
