When the Going was Good
Today is the birthday of Ronald Reagan, of blessed memory. He was a great president; Obama isn't fit to iron his pocket handkerchiefs. Above all, Reagan serves to remind us that real charisma, at bottom, is dependent on character, dignity and substantive ideas. Maybe we'll all remember that by the time 2012 rolls around.
Ace of Spades has a video of the 1981 inaugural address.
Update: A great - and typical - Reagan story.
