Wow. I am just finishing up The "S" Word: A Short History of an American Tradition... Socialism. Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Paine and Benjamin Franklin figure pretty prominently in this very interesting book.

It's pretty well documented that Lincoln and Karl Marx were mutual admirers, but I think they would have dropped their Communist meanderings if there were real vampires to slay, not just the metaphorical kind.
