I agree. When I said that Reagan was one of the great Presidents since
Lincoln, I wasn't giving my opinion. I think that the consensus is that RR was a great
President in the sense of how effective he was in moving the country to serve his agenda (which was markedly different from anything since Hoover). Personally, I think that Reagan was an evil prick
and 24 years after he left office, we're still trying to reverse some of the damage he caused.
With respect to Lincoln, he preserved the Union
and freed the Slaves
. That's enough to be great in my book.
