Remembering Ronald Reagan

Lost in the hype of Sunday's Super Bowl (by the way, I blew another prediction) was the celebration of what would have been the 100th birthday of Ronald Reagan. 
Republican or Democrat, conservative or liberal, we should all take our personal conduct cues from our 40th president. 
You see with Reagan, it was always about respect.  Respect for the office (he never took off his jacket in the oval office), respect for his opponents (one of his best friends in Washington was his fieriest adversary, Democratic House Speaker Tip O'Neill), and respect for his fellow man.  Even if you didn't love his politics, it was hard not to love the man. 
I enjoyed reading this online interview with former Secretary of State James Baker, who ran two political campaigns against Reagan.
And I enjoyed reliving the humor and wit of Reagan.  Click the photo below - I guarantee you will laugh!
