Ronald Reagan

Michael Barone:


"I wasn't a great communicator," said the man who talked his way into college, into radio, into the movies, into politics and into the presidency, "but I communicated great things, and they didn't spring full blown from my brow, they came from the heart of a great nation -- from our experience, our wisdom and our belief in the principles that have guided us for two centuries." The president who voted for more winning presidential candidates than any other president seems to have always regarded himself as a child of destiny, and it turns out he was. But the destiny, he insisted, was not his own but that of the people of the United States of America.
This comes at the end of a biographical piece on Reagan that most of you will find inspirational. He accomplished so much, that is hard for some to appreciate how he did much of it by his own boot straps.
