Happy 200th Birthday, Abraham Lincoln!

With all the birthday hoopla surrounding Abraham Lincoln, his favorite Bible, and his reincarnation as Barack Obama, there is one angle that has been unfortunately overlooked by historians.

Deep in the woods of New Hampshire, there was once a bearded, wood-chopping, Lincoln enthusiast who ran for president against Bill Clinton. Fringe presidential candidate Carmen Chimento, who served me one of the most fantastic veggie omelets I’ve ever eaten, even went as far as putting his face on phony $4 bills!

The following clip, from my 1996 documentary “Why Can’t I Be President?”, is narrated by CNN’s Wolf Blitzer.
