Some pundits believe that the death of Reagan, a Republican, will enhance the image of our current President, being that they are of the same party and all. However, as Reagan’s legacy is examined it seems more likely that what will be revealed is a stark contrast between a great communicator and his complete opposite. Reagan had a way of making many people like him despite political affiliation. George W. Bush has the exact opposite skill.
Moreover, there’s not much comparison between a two-term, popular President and the son of a one-term loser.
