Gov. Tom Corbett on emulating Lincoln

In his recent commencement address to the graduating class of Villanova Law, Pennsylvania’s Gov. Tom Corbett named Lincoln and Sir Thomas More as worthy of emulation:

Both “chose honor over convenience,” Corbett told 233 graduates and their friends and family at Villanova’s Pavilion.

Corbett, who was state attorney general and had a private practice for many years before becoming governor, gave a short speech exhorting the graduates to work hard, act ethically, think logically, and always look at the facts.

“Leaders who combine these qualites make great lawyers. They make great citizens. And they make great history,” he said.
