John Tyler did great with his domestic and foreign affairs despite him being and forcing himself to be the first Vise President to become an President. He struggled to do many things with his obnoxious administration going against him every day. Tyler 's domestic affairs along with his greatest success was when he fought Congressional attempts at usurpation to establish the precedent that a Vice President becomes a full president with all a president’s powers on the death of the incumbent President.

Lincoln felt certain that he would not be reelected because he had received a torrent of criticism throughout the war. Most recently, with the controversial Emancipation Proclamation, Lincoln had earned the ire of several. And then when people, specifically Northerners, grew to understand the Proclamation as a way of speeding up the war, (something that had indeed been Lincoln's intention) the frustration against Lincoln only mounted once it appeared that the war was not going to be ending anytime soon. At the same time, Lincoln was rarely being regarded for certain strategic victories, such as the removal of the Confederacy from Tennessee. Lincoln's more realistic goal and Reconstruction plans were met with mixed feelings.

In fact, he begins as a valiant leader only serving Duncan’s wishes to win a battle against a rebellious force. After this battle, he receives a new title which fuels his ambition and causes him to think of immoral ways to seize what he so passionately believes is his: the throne. Macbeth is then led to spin a web of lies to cover up his previous actions and ultimately becomes a deceitful tyrant. In total,, his strive for success got him very far, but it also revealed something in him that is universally human which is the desire for more power. Like Macbeth, not all of humanity is fit to serve since with great power comes incredible amounts of responsibility.
King delivers his speeches in a slow manner, emplacing the points that he wants people to take away from his speeches. Additionally, his delivery of speeches paints such a vivid picture that those listening feel the reality of the change and follow him on his journey. For the lack of improvement that he needs to make as a speaker this is truly why King is widely considered one of the best speakers of all time. Both the I Have a Dream Speech, and Give us the Ballot speech demonstrate King’s ability to sway the masses through the use of his style and delivery.
In Lincoln 's inaugural speech he said "This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing Government, they can exercise their 'constitutional ' right of amending it or they are 'revolutionary ' right to dismember or overthrow it"(Abraham Lincoln 's First Inaugural Address).

We saw Lincoln as a savvy strategist, a man of great depth who could out-think and out-maneuver his opponents in a way that made him self-assured in his own ability to secure the ends he desired. Lincoln held strong moral convictions about right and wrong, and was not shy about pursuing them. To Lincoln, the end result was everything, and he was willing to achieve his outcome through almost any means.
