In this U.S. election year, the president who grabbed the most attention was not actually running for office. Historically, he was a great debater, he issued the Emancipation Proclamation and he gave one of the most powerful speeches of all time. Since then he has become one of our most revered presidents, with a massive memorial in Washington, D.C., to prove it. We see him every day on $5 bills and the penny. In Hollywood this year, he hunted vampires and is currently being portrayed by Daniel Day-Lewis. There was even controversy about a potential Lincoln misquote during a Democratic convention. Lincoln has never been hotter.
