Both men lived in Illinois for much of their life. Both studied law and became licensed attorneys. Both became presidents of the United States. Both were very polarizing figures-- it seemed people either loved them or hated them. Both took strong stands on equality-- in Lincoln's case, it was about racial equality; in Obama's case, it was about equal pay for women and marriage equality for gay people.
