Utah, I don't believe that Lincoln was bi-polar, instead he suffered life-long chronic depression that deeply affected his entire being. There is nothing written (I believe) of any manic episodes for Abraham Lincoln. http://www.mcmanweb.com/lincoln_depression.htmlI think this is an important distinction that needs to be made.
