Ronald Wilson Reagan, the most successful conservative American
politician of modern times, died Saturday at his California home at age
93.

Derided by his adversaries as glib, doctrinaire and uninformed — a mere
actor, they scoffed — Reagan demonstrated throughout his political
career the power that comes from being underestimated.

He won power by defeating overconfident Democratic incumbents — Gov.
Pat Brown in California in 1966 and President Jimmy Carter in the 1980
presidential election.

Yep -- watching that on the news now. As much as I enjoyed Reagan -- they had just better not pre-empt the Belmont!!!!

// I know -- that was not quite polite...but I know Ronald is in a much better place. He didn't deserve to have to live his last years like he had to. I'm sure he is at peace.
