    I think Ultra Magnus would fit the Grant role more. He was more of a general before becoming leader, Rodimus was just a kid.

    There are also allegories to Grant's military background being something of a hindrance to his political leadership, something we could also argue for G1 Magnus.

    I agree with Prime being the Lincoln type character since he called on the Autobots better nature and his goal was to unify Cybertron again.

    I'm not sure that I see Rodimus as much of a Grant. Grant's biggest problem as President was that he surrounded himself with the wrong people. Rodimus is more of an Andrew Johnson. Couldn't really grasp the vision of the leader before him and just a really failed leader compared to the leader he replaced at the sudden tragic death of the leader before him.

    Rodimus and Andrew Johnson also share being judged poorly by history. Plenty of Transformers fans that will rank Rodimus as one of the worst Autobot leaders and plenty of historians that would list Andrew Johnson among the worst US Presidents.
