The Reagan Pentagon?

Bill Frist says we should rename the Pentagon as the Ronald Reagan National Defense Building. The second biggest building in the federal government already bears his name: the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center (it has more interior space than the Empire State Building). I know Reagan was a defense hawk, but wouldn’t it be ironic if the government’s two largest buildings bore his name?
