Dragon Slayer - by Daryl Cagle

This is an amusing cartoon. I'm sure everyone's got the message already. I received this in an email and thought it was really creative and well done. In reality, Obama is non-violent and wouldn't hurt a fly. Case in point, what's up with this Hillary and Joe Lieberman thingy ... as possible cabinet members? Obama admires Abraham Lincoln and his politics. It seems he's being lead by the teachings of our 16th president. I hope he remembers that some of our rivals are destructive and self serving. They don't all have our best interest at heart.

"In winning the Republican presidential nomination, Lincoln had to defeat some powerful rivals--particularly, William Seward, Salmon Chase, and Edward Bates. When he was elected, Lincoln appointed them to his Cabinet, because he wanted to bring his opponents together so that he could benefit from their talents and sharpen his judgment in response to their critical advice." (1)

My hope is that the dragon is not revived and remains where he is. Who needs his advice anyway?
