WOW!   

Why November the 9th?

Because if they released it on October 9th, Obama would be packing for Hawaii come January.

I can't wait!
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

Hopefully it will not be a historical hatchet job.  I have no faith in Hollywood to not try to rewrite history.

There is so many different views of Lincoln and his presidency that this should be interesting to see the take Spielberg has on it.

With the November release this is clearly aimed at the 2013 Academy awards show......
