If I were Abe how would I have felt being him?

I think it would be very hard to be president of the US. Especially hard being the leader of the union. I think what he did about slavery was food and I would feel the same way. He supported women's rights so I like that a lot. In my opinion he was the best president the US ever had. I would also be a little scared being him just about everything he was against and how the people who do it would react.
