It is drive and depression that I'm having difficulty reconciling, although he clearly did seem to have both.

One other element was his wife Mary Todd Lincoln who was said to be a complete wack job. Much of Lincoln's depression could easily be traced to her.

Also, she was from a VERY well to do family here in Lexington and that rise in wealth that Lincoln enjoyed from his log cabin beginnings had much to do with the infusion of the Todd money.

Before marrying Lincoln she dated Stephen Douglas so I am guessing there was at least one other debate we did not hear about.

There are several new theories on the problems of the Lincoln's. One is that Abe had syphilis, and considering he made his money as a young man working river boats down into New Orleans it is more than possible. He infected Mary, resulting in her dementia.

Facts and ideas from anywhere

Another new and very controversial theory is that Abe was a closeted homosexual, and his depression was caused by him getting no bone:

Sexuality of Abraham Lincoln - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
