Richard Reeves, ME Biography

Senior Lecturer at the University of Southern California's Annenberg School of Communication
Pro to the question "Was Ronald Reagan a Good President?"

“Reagan had come into the oval office at a time when the man in it… was declaring political bankruptcy and important voices outside it, in the press and the academy, were decrying the end of leadership. They were wrong. The new President made the system work… The leader was an extraordinary man.”

The Politics Presidents Make: Leadership from John Adams to Bill Clinton by Stephen Skowronek, 2003
