Lincoln --the movie -- an apt portrayal of a democracy's inner workings -- messy as it may seem -- through compromise righteousness ultimately wins -- benefiting the nation and its citizens in the long run.
A befitting movie to watch on the eve of when the first democratically elected government in Pakistan gets to complete its 5 year term by constitutionally relinquishing power to a caretaker government on the 15th day of March 2013.
President Lincoln had a bloody civil war -- today in a manner of speaking Pakistan is engulfed in a bloody idealogical civil war -- similar in meaning to the American Civil War.
