In today's column, The Des Moines Register's David Yepsen quoted from a book about Abraham Lincoln's firstsuccessful presidential campaign.  The book — The Great Comeback: How Abraham Lincoln Beat the Odds To Win the 1860 Republican Presidential Nomination – is written by Gary Ecelbarger.  Ecelbarger is the husband of one of my college roommates, Carolyn.  Carolyn and I were dorm friends who lived on a floor called "Vollmer."  We shared an apartment one summer where I learned to appreciate the whole wheat spaghetti Carolyn ate to fuel her long-distance runs.  The apartment was also the site of our first exposure to MTV.

Here's the Amazon link for Gary's book.  This is Gary's website.
