Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency. It turns out the patient himself wrote it, according to Bornstein. He previously claimed he had written the letter. The only solid conclusion we can draw from this episode is that it is more evidence that Trump surrounds himself with lunatics.
Background[ edit ] Wood-frame "Wigwam" building specially designed for the Republican Convention in Chicago By the dissolution of the Whig Party in America had become an accomplished fact, with establishment Whig politicians, former Free Soilersand a certain number of anti-Catholic populists from the Know Nothing movement flocking to the banner of the fledgling anti-slavery Republican Party.
Party leaders sought to hold their nominating convention in the burgeoning Middle Western trade center of Chicagothen a city of somepeople. Delegations were seated by state and the gathering was virtually devoid of Southern participation, with no delegations attending from the slave states of North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Arkansas, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Florida.
Representative David Wilmot of Pennsylvania was elected temporary chairman of the gathering. He had been the author in of the Wilmot Proviso which would have banned slavery from new states incorporated into the Union. A great sectional and aristocratic party, or interest, has for years dominated with a high hand over the political affairs of this country.
That interest has wrested, and is now wresting, all the great powers of this government to the one object of the extension and nationalization of slavery. It is our purpose, gentlemen, it is the mission of the Republican Party and the basis of its organization, to resist this policy of a sectional interest It is our purpose and our policy to resist these new constitutional dogmas that slavery exists by virtue of the constitution wherever the banner of the Union floats.
Despite considerable popular support for Crittenden’s compromise, Congress failed to enact it. Although incoming secretary of state William Seward, viewed by southerners as a radical on slavery, backed the plan, most Republicans agreed with President-elect Abraham Lincoln, who opposed it.

The convention met in mid-May, after the Democrats had been forced to adjourn the Democratic National Convention in Charleston, South Carolinawithout a nominee and had not yet re-convened in Baltimore, Maryland. With the Democrats in disarray and with a sweep of the Northern states possible, the Republicans were confident of victory.
Seward of New York was generally expected to get the nomination. Other candidates seeking the nomination at the convention included Lincoln, Governor of Ohio Salmon P.
Chaseformer U. Representative Edward Bates of Missouriand U. Senator Simon Cameron of Pennsylvania. As the convention developed, however, it was revealed that Seward, Chase, and Bates had each alienated factions of the Republican Party.
Delegates were concerned that Seward was too closely identified with the radical wing of the party, and his moves toward the center had alienated the radicals. Chase, a former Democrat, was opposed by many of the former Whigs who had become Republicans, was thought to be too radical on slavery, had opposed tariffs wanted by Pennsylvania manufacturing interests, and critically, had opposition in his own delegation from Ohio.
Bates outlined his positions on extension of slavery into the territories and equal constitutional rights for all citizens, positions that alienated his supporters in the border states and southern conservatives.
German-Americans in the party opposed Bates because of his past association with the Know-Nothings. It was essential to carry the West what would today be considered the Middle Westand Lincoln was a prominent Westerner.
He had a national reputation from his debates and speeches, in which he eloquently opposed slavery while avoiding any of the radical positions that could alienate moderate voters.
He had the support of the Illinois and Indiana delegations before the convention, and was the strongest candidate other than Seward.
Nonetheless, Seward's prestige appeared likely to carry him to the nomination. During the night of May 17—18, they worked frantically to win anti-Seward delegates for Lincoln. They showed that Lincoln already had the most support after Seward, which persuaded some.
They also made a deal with Simon Cameron of Pennsylvania, who recognized that he had no chance of winning the nomination himself. Cameron controlled the Pennsylvania delegation, and he offered to trade his support for the promise of a cabinet position for himself and control of Federal patronage in Pennsylvania.
Lincoln did not want to make any such deal; from Springfield, he telegraphed to Davis "I authorize no bargains and will be bound by none". The next day May 18when voting for the nomination began, Seward led on the first ballot with Lincoln a distant second.Bela Bartok - Six Romanian Dances (Violin+Piano) (Arr Szekely) - Free download as PDF File .pdf), Text File .txt) or read online for free.
