叫我「行政長官」 - 古德明
A man came upon Lincoln blacking his boots in the basement of the White House. Astonished that the president of the United States should be at such a menial task, he exclaimed, "What! Mr President, are you blacking your own boots?" "Whose else should I be blacking? " came Lincoln's laconic reply.
Lincoln was free from the usual official vanity, and shrank from the title of Mr President, generally referring to his office as "this place," "since I have been in this place, " or "since I came here. " Referring at one time to the apartment reserved in the Capitol for the president, he called it "the room, you know, that they call the president's room. " Once he pleaded with some old friends who addressed him as Mr President : "Now call me Lincoln, and I'll promise not to tell of the breach of etiquette."
