Lowry's latest book, "Lincoln Unbound," accuses liberals of appropriating and "body-snatching" the beloved president and suggests that Lincoln should be viewed as a beacon of libertarianism and other conservative values. Reclaiming Lincoln's legacy, he argues, can help the GOP regain its mantle as a party of opportunity and aspiration. He joins us in the studio.
