- Former US Permanent Representative to the United Nations
- Pro to the question "Was Ronald Reagan a Good President?"
“Nothing but liberal prejudice can prevent some distinguished Democrats (which most historians are) from discerning the extraordinary achievements of Ronald Reagan. I mention just two: his crucial role in rebuilding American and Western military strength after a period of Western decline and Soviet expansion, and his great success in demonstrating the superiority of free markets and free societies over socialism — especially, but not only, Marxist socialism. His leadership in these achievements strengthened peace and expanded freedom.
This is a president whose deliberate policies produced seven years of economic growth…after Democratic economists said that was impossible.”
“‘There You Go Again’: Liberal Historians and the ‘New York Times’ Deny Ronald Reagan His Due” by Alvin Felzenberg, Policy Review, Mar.-Apr. 1997
