    Reagan’s not as good looking. But pretty much, yeah.

      I know a lot of people who thought Reagan was quite dashing. And I don’t mean in the 50s, but while President.

    I love that you said this, because this morning as I was listening to the news I was thinking, “This is great, now we’ve got our own ‘great communicator’!” Neener neener indeed. And I love #3, as my mother used to always say that and it’s an important loop in my internal tapes.

    I remember when the Democrats were the party of disarray — they were going to go the way of the Whigs, no Democrat would ever again be elected to any office higher than dogcatcher, etc., etc.
