CONTEST UPDATE:

Thank you to everyone who submitted responses –– the contest has now ended. Congratulations to all the winners:

“If Lincoln were alive for the 2012 election…”

Barak Gila: He would feel vindicated by seeing a black president but be appalled by his debating skills!

Archit Dua: He would be ecstatic to learn that his party is promoting women! #bindersfullofwomen

Tiffany Nguyen: he would have a longer beard

Sean Lee: He would start a Civil War between the 1% and the 99%.

Pooja Desai: he WOULD invest in horses and bayonets

Faris Karaborni: Cry over the issues that drive our nation apart.

Rohan Yelsangikar: he would be annoyed at the fact there are less horses and bayonets in the world.

Yeji Oh: he would win the election.

Stephanie Chang: I personally would be very interested in which candidate he would vote for. Would Lincoln vote for Mitt Romney, a fellow Republican, or vote for Barack Obama? Surely he would be proud that his efforts to abolish slavery has come a long way — with the current president of the United States being half black! Of course, either reasons for voting for the respective candidate would be quite superficial… EITHER WAY I LOVE YOU LINCOLN CUZ YOU HATE SLAVERY LIKE ME YAYAYA

Please remember to pick up your tickets on Oct. 25 in A111 during tutorial.
