I wish I were man enough to "Drink a pint of whiskey a day" and still function at the level that I do.

Didn't know that, and that is a LOT of booze every day!

If slave apportionment was not in there, the slave states were ready to not join the US, and form a separate country.

There weren't any good solutions to the slave issue. Just less bad ones.
