"I am 10 years older than I was a year ago. " We believe that's a line Abraham Lincoln said to Gen. Ulysses S. Grant at the end of "Lincoln. " Or it could be something "Lincoln" lead Daniel Day-Lewis wearily muttered during one of the endless Q&As he's done during a long campaign of an altogether different sort than the one fought for the Union.
