Stephen Douglas, who was short in stature, was the Democratic Party nominee in the 1860 US presidential election. He lost to the Republican candidate Abraham Lincoln.
One day, when a group of men were discussing Douglas and his physical pecularities, Lincoln happened to join them. One of them asked him how long he thought a man's legs should be. "Well," said Lincoln, "I should think a man's legs ought to be long enough to reach from his body to the ground."

In 1864, George McClellan ran for the US presidency against incumbent president Lincoln. When Lincoln heard that a general who was supporting McClellan had been relieved of his command, Lincoln countermanded the order, saying, "Supporting McClellan for the presidency is no violation of army regulations, and as a question of taste in choosing between him and me, well, I'm the longest, but he's better looking."
史蒂芬.道格拉斯身材矮小。一八六零年美國總統選舉,他獲民主黨提名,但敗在共和黨候選人亞伯拉罕.林肯手下。
有一天,一群人在討論道格拉斯和他的體格特徵。這時,林肯走來,有人就問他說,他認為男人雙腿,應有多長。林肯回答:「我認為,男人雙腿,須由其身軀長達地面。」

一八六四年,喬治.麥克萊倫競逐美國總統之職,對手是時任總統的林肯。當時有個將軍,支持麥克萊倫,被解除職務,林肯聽說,就把這解除職務命令撤銷,說道:「支持麥克萊倫競選總統,沒有違反軍隊規則。而選擇麥克萊倫或林肯,或關乎品味:我個子高,他樣子比我好看。」
