Reagan and the People
Although Ronald Reagan had a very destructive blind spot when came to the war on people who use certain kinds of drugs, I would still rate him as by far the best president of my lifetime. This is because he was the first president since Calvin Coolidge to understand the central tenet guiding the Founding Father’s vision of what America should be. Reagan knew that it was not about him; it was about us, the people. I do not think you can say the same of George Bush.
