Thread Name: BS: Slavery and the White House
Subject: RE: BS: Slavery and the White House
I don't think I gave it a thought until I heard First Lady Michelle Obama mention it, and now I think of it a lot. I'm so glad she was First Lady for a couple of terms. She and her husband were a breath of sorely needed fresh air in our government, and I don't think their effect has been fully dislocated by the sad lot of negative posers who followed for the next four years.

Lincoln made the comment during the American Civil War that has stayed with me, in effect that the progress of the war may undo all the labor that was performed by slavery. I think that statement may be true figuratively at least. But through history we cannot deny that it did, indeed, happen.
