Re ‘Would the Right Love Reagan Today? Yawn.’

I’d like to add just one point about Reagan — a familiar one, but one worth remaking now and then. It is frequently cited that Reagan liked to talk about an “Eleventh Commandment”: “Thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican.” It should be cited at least half as frequently that the guy did what is rarely done: challenge an incumbent president of his own party, for the presidential nomination.
