I haven't seen this movie yet (I will) but a friend who did said that it shows Lincoln as leaving no stone unturned (legally and illegally) to achieve his aims: maintaining the union and ending slavery. In essence, he breaks the rules of his office and his nation to get what he feels is "best for us." That alarmed me a little, partly because my friend felt it therefore showed him as a hero, and partly because I got a shiver of Obama up my spine. Break the rules to achieve your ends... hmm..
