 Political Parties
The political parties are not mentioned in the Constitutional Act of the Kingdom of Denmark, which is the framework of the political system of Denmark.
The supreme body of the parties is the national congress at which representatives of all levels of the party gather in order to discuss the general political lines.
This method means that a party is represented in the Folketing, proportionally to the number of votes obtained by the party on a nation-wide basis and not only proportionally to the number of votes which the candidate of the party has obtained in the constituency in which he or she runs for election.

In these circumstances, and in view of the fact that scrutiny has to be undertaken to a very tight timetable, the Government proposes to wait until the Electoral Commission's register covers at least three years of disclosable donations before extending the new scrutiny arrangement to CBE candidates generally.
However, candidates at this level nominated for political services, or added to the list by the Prime Minister, will continue to be subject to scrutiny by the PHSC.
In the interim, the record of any disclosable donations to political parties made by such individuals during the build-up of the register will of course be transparent to the public.

 Amazon.co.uk: Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln: Books   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-17)
The emphasis is on how their personal and political lives shaped their personalities and their destinies, as well as how circumstances compelled them to accept posts in the Lincoln cabinet and (with one notable exception) come to recognize that the president they served was the greatest man of his generation.
One of the key recurring elements is the way diverse parties as Frederick Douglass and the "Charleston Mercury" reversed their opinions about Lincoln as president, explaining why it was the most vilified American of the 19th century when he was first inaugurated would become a secular saint whose death was met with almost universal bereavement.
As Kearns quite correctly asserts, only a “political genius” could have assembled and then worked effectively with cabinet members such as Chase, Bates, Seward, and Stanton, all of whom were independent thinkers, had personal agendas, and (at least initially) considered themselves super to Lincoln in all respects.
