He also... ... middle of paper ... ...ore I do agree with Phillip Shaw Paludan when he said that Abraham Lincoln was American’s greatest president. Lincoln did many things for America, things that no other president had done. He also gained many different titles no matter if they were good or bad or by whoever liked him or not.

Without the new amendments there would not have been peace or equality; we would probably still be at war with ourselves and our Union would have been divided.
Both of them think first about their citizens and nations and yet, can be easily considered as heroes for their citizens.

One must not forget that, apart from being the trusted, the citizens also wanted to trust and believe themselves as well. It can be understand especially from Emerson’s text. Born on 12 February 1809 in Kentucky, Abraham Lincoln was the 16th president of the United States of America at the year of 1860.
6) While there are critics that attempt to make President Lincoln out to be a war monger and a radical abolitionist, if you really do your research, you will see that he was doing everything he could to be a good president.

Kennedy delivered has been considered to be one of the most moving speeches given by a president. He uses the emotions of the voters in his favor.

Kennedy plays on the want that people have to help others, saying that the country will go aid covered countries.
Being president is no easy job there are going to be up's and down's , being a leader of the United States takes a lot of effort and support for everyone in office. When American's vote for a president they pick between two canidates , they want someone who can be trusted and be a leader but sometime's the people running they say they will do this and that but when they get elected it's a whole different ball game. I wish we could have another president who has the characteristics like Abraham Lincoln and can put stuff back to normal and someone who can be trusted and keep there promises.
