Abraham Lincoln was a former President of the United States.
During the Civil War, Lincoln was quoted as saying, "I do not claim to have control of events, but confess plainly that events have control of me." Centuries later, President David Palmer, facing a possible war with three countries in the Middle East, shared this quote with White House Chief of Staff Mike Novick. ("Day 2: 11:00pm-12:00am")
