Yes, and he would have legalized gay marriage.

War time presidents almost always get reelected.

Do you mean a third term, in the election of 1868? Most likely Grant would still vie for the presidency, and Lincoln would be fairly tired after dealing with war, slavery, and reconstruction. So I don't think so.

And if you're talking about 1864, he already had won that election.
