Obama to Take the Oath on Lincoln's Bible

So apparently Obama will be using Lincoln's Bible when he takes the oath of office... Sigh, excuse me a moment while I pop a couple of Excedrin... Could this man be more narcissistic? He makes Narcissus look like a humble man. Lincoln's Bible? What makes him think he deserves to use it? What makes him think he is on any sort of level even approaching that of Lincoln? Sure, he is the first, mostly all Black President, and that is certainly an accomplishment for him, and for the Civil Rights movement, but really? Lincoln's Bible? Naw, that's not right. Before Obama goes placing himself on the same plane as Lincoln, he needs to accomplish something truly monumental, course changing, and era defining, like say, freeing the slaves, or uniting a country during a civil war.

WASHINGTON — President-elect Barack Obama will use the same Bible at his inauguration that Abraham Lincoln used for his swearing in.
Obama will be the first president since Lincoln to use that Bible, part of the collection of the Library of Congress.

"President-elect Obama is deeply honored that the Library of Congress has made the Lincoln Bible available for use during his swearing-in," Presidential Inaugural Committee Executive Director Emmett Beliveau said in a statement Tuesday.

Obama is also tracing the train route that Lincoln took and holding a welcome event at the Lincoln Memorial ahead of his Jan. 20 inauguration.
