    had "Dixie" played after the war was over as a way to convey forgiveness and the wish for peace.

    I believe in democracy, civil liberties, and the rule of law. That makes me a liberal, and I’m proud of it. - Paul Krugman

      Had sent several hundred thousand southerners to their graves.  There was a bit more cause for reconciliation than just daring to be President while black.  And Lincoln's magnanimity gave us a century and a half (so far) of neo-Confederate assholes who won't accept that they lost.  A few hundred thousand hangings for treason might have made the point a little more clearly.

      And again - this president has bent over backwards to accommodate the far right.  They've given him nothing but hatred and bile in return.  After four years of making like Lincoln and trying to make nice, with four more years to secure a legacy, it would be a great relief if he started sticking it to these assholes.  It's the only level of communication they understand.
