Lincoln’s Coming to Dinner

By Frank Milligan

Some of us remember Tony Danza as the cab driver in the television show Taxi or the housekeeping single father in Who’s the Boss? Fewer readers, however, would know that Danza has co-authored a cook-book with his son who is a chef, so an invitation for dinner to the Danza household might be well worth accepting if only for the food. In a recent interview with Rachael Ray, Danza was asked if he could have anyone, living or dead, over for a dinner party, who he would invite? His invitees included Frank Sinatra, Abraham Lincoln, John McCain and Barack Obama on the premise that it would be good for the two presidential nominees to talk with Lincoln, “And I’d need Frank there to make sure everybody is listening!”

Dr. Milligan is the Director at President Lincoln’s Cottage

    Abraham Lincoln may not have been the presidential contender with the most experience but he had a lack of ego which allowed him to be a team builder and to surround himself with the people who could best advise him on issues on which they had expertise. I hope that Barak and John would learn that skill from him at Tony’s dinner party. Oh, and I wish Frank would sing “Can’t We Be Friends?”
