And the point is??????

Obviously if "Abe" felt it was morally correct AND politically expediant he would have supported it. However remember "Abe" was NOT an abolitionist but rather a realist. He wanted to "preserve" the union and operated accordingly. Certainly does not justify the continuation of slavery as an approved practice if that is what you are implying.
