George W. Lincoln Meet Abraham Bush.

Some commentators have noted parallels between George W. Bush and Abraham Lincoln. The wartime presidencies, the internal political dissension over the war, the curtailment of civil rights, the changing rationales for the war. Mister Americano believes the comparison is apt and that Bush will one day be regarded in the pantheon of great presidents along with Lincoln. Although it would help matters if there were modern parallels to Grant and Sherman.

Now Best of the Web's James Taranto points to another similarity between Bush and Lincoln.
"Nor is Bush the first president to be elected and re-elected while losing his state of birth both times. That distinction he must share with Abraham Lincoln." (Here)
Bush is such a Texan that people tend to forget he was born in Connecticut, a state he failed to carry twice.
