Lead: As a leader, Abraham Lincoln was inspiring but was also quite practical.

Intro.: A Moment in Time with Dan Roberts.

Content: Following his death, Abraham Lincoln became for many the fallen leader struck down at the moment of triumph. Former enemies, who never in his life had a single good thing to say about the man, soon forgot their animus and joined with the rest of the country in an attitude of near worship. All of which would have probably amused the former President, who had an unusually clear understanding of human frailty and the fickle nature of politics.
