Thoughts on the HBO Reagan Documentary

I watched it this weekend and found it a fascinating and fair look at the former president. Not a smear job, but not a whitewash either. Three thoughts:

- Even though they all worship him, there's no one like Reagan on the Republican side now, in terms of optimism or political skill. Not even close.

- Glad it didn't soft-pedal the role "Rocky IV" played in the end of the Cold War.

- Could you imagine if something like Iran Contra happened with Obama? He'd be impeached the next day, with Reagan worshippers leading the charge.
