It's been very telling how open the newly electred administration has been, even two and a half months before taking over, in revealing its hand in just about everything. Like, drunk level openness. Not since Lincoln has our country so intensely anticipate what would happen once the transfer of power took place(Reagan's pre-tenure barely registers a blip in comparison). And oh what a difference...

Contrast Trump's airing, tweeting of every new potential appointment and minute to minute reactions, to that of Lincoln's virtual silence on all matters to allow the sitting president(Buchanan, a democrat) to continue to lead the nation through extremely uncertain times, and all the while, an entire nation, split apart, held its collective breath wondering if the country could even survive the winter.
