A lot of time is spent hashing and re-hashing the issues of the day, and bickering over things that seem down-right trivial today. But the core of the debate is well worth the lulls. Both men make strong arguments. The logic of Douglas¿s arguments would find a lot of support today (and do in both the abortion and gay marriage debates). Because of that, Lincoln¿s rejoinders are as important now as they were when he fought for abolitionism.
