A Quote by George Herbert Walker Bush on america, caring, certainty, earth, facts, inspiration, justice, people, presidency, quality, and slavery

Abraham Lincoln truly inspired me. It wasn't just the freeing of the slaves, he kept the Union together. Some people even forget that today. What I think inspired me was the fact that in spite of being the President of the United States he retained a certain down-to-earth quality. He never got to be a big shot, and he cared about people.
