The Gipper Passes
As you know by now, former president Ronald Reagan died today. Putting politics aside, may God bless his soul, and our prayers are with his wife Nancy and their family.
Update: Kerry, in suspending his campaign for a couple of days due to Reagan's passing, nails the differences between Reagan's approach to politics and what we see from George W. Bush's GOP today:
"Even when he was breaking Democrats hearts, he did so with a smile and in the spirit of honest and open debate," Kerry said in a statement. "The differences were real, but because of the way President Reagan led, he taught us that there is a big difference between strong beliefs and bitter partisanship."
