      I have to agree on Reagan, but IMHO, the jury is still out on Bush. If Kerry is elected and fails to complete the job Bush started in Iraq(or Bush himself blows it), history will treat him poorly. How ever, if Iraq turns the middle east toward democracy, he will be in the top 10.

      • <<How ever, if Iraq turns the middle east toward democracy, he will be in the top 10.>>

        To me, this is the essence of the gamble that Bush is taking. If the US succeeds in planting a viable democracy in the middle of the Middle East, this will be a BIG WIN for America and world peace in general. That is precisely why entrenched interests are working so hard that is should *not* be a success.

        What's sad is that many of our supposed allies and the media (and the academics) don't have the courage or foresight to understand what is truly in their long term best interests: peace, religious tolerance and stable democracies across the world working together for the good of all.

      It is a bit early to write the history. Subsequent events can greatly color the writing of history which evaluates the results of an administration.

      • What did Reagan do otherwise than confuse the public and run up hugh deficets. Basically he lived his live the more you give to rich people the more they can give jobs to poor people. Thats about it.

        What has Bush done. Basically cut taxes in areas and made the tax laws more complex. Then he gave permission to write laws to anyone that gave him campaign contributions.

        What did Clinton do, sign an earned income credit making the laws more complex. He also let husbands stay at home when his wife has a baby. That is about it.

        Our politicans just make the laws more complex.
        And give money to anyone that either asks nice or gives them contributions.
