Abraham Lincoln’s June 17, 1858, speech, upon accepting the Illinois Republican Party's nomination as that state's United States senator, was about slavery; but his admonition about a nation divided could just as well apply to 21st century America. What divides us today, however, isn’t one man’s right to own another, but government’s right to own us all.

Whatever your views on Secretary of Defense designate Chuck Hagel, if he is confirmed the likelihood that he will leave Defense four years from now better than he found it are extremely low. Discussions about Sen. Hagel’s personal views on gays, Iran, Israel, and other issues aside—after all, policy is made in the White House, not the Pentagon—he will have little going for him and enormous challenges to deal with as he assumes office.
