""A tough fight to push a bill through a bitterly divided Congress," Clinton began before describing how difficult it was for Lincoln to pass the 13th amendment. "Winning it required the president to make a lot of unsavory deals that had nothing to do with the big issue. I wouldn't know anything about that," Clinton quipped, much to the delight of the crowd. Several actors and actresses were spotted taking cell phone photos of Clinton.

"President Lincoln's struggle to abolish slavery reminds us that enduring progress is forged in a cauldron of both principle and compromise," Clinton continued. "This brilliant film shows us how he did it, and gives us hope that we can do it again."

Get both parties to work together,,I didn't write it, just copied it..maybe if you clicked the url and read it?

the meaning is working together to accomplish what needs to be done,and how Lincoln accomplished it.
maybe if you watched the movie, you would understand it better..

Saw it this weekend, so-so but the quote used of Clintons was the eye opener reading it you get the impression it was a reference to slavery in todays world. Think maybe he could have stated it a tad better.
