Our vice, their versa

Well, well:
Some people believe if they defend Mary Todd Lincoln, they have to revile Robert Todd Lincoln and vice-versa, Emerson said. “It’s disappointing that it’s dissolved into this ‘he said, she said’ thing. If you look at them both honestly and objectively, you don’t have to judge them against each other,” he said.
This either/or partisan reflex covers many more personalities beyond the Lincolns.

Oh look!
