    Well, some states show sense at times anyway.  Vote was 59-1.

    Well, you can stake that claim
    Good work is the key to good fortune
    Winners take that praise
    Losers seldom take that blame   If they don't take that game
    And sometimes the winner takes nothing
    We draw our own designs
    But fortune has to make that frame   We go out in the world and take our chances
    Fate is just the weight of circumstances
    That's the way that Lady Luck dances

    Friends who claim to know more about Reagan than I do add another difference: Whatever his politics, Reagan liked people, or at least a lot of people. He didn't live in a Trumpian world of fear, calculated cruelty and vindictive rage. (Cannot so vouch for some of the people around him.)

    Not at all.  The Reagans docu-series on Showtime illustrates a good number of parallels between Reagan and Trump.  Both ran on platforms appealing to right-wing voters.  Both ran on platforms vowing to "Make America Great Again"--Reagan had that slogan long before Trump took it for his own.  Both of them had epidemics of new diseases with which to deal--AIDS for Reagan, COVID-19 for Trump.  Both chose to deal with those diseases by basically ignoring them.  
     
    The biggest difference between the Reagans and the Trumps is, perhaps, in the First Ladies.  Nancy Reagan wielded a tremendous measure of influence with Ronald, especially after he was shot by John Hinckley.  Melania Trump, to my knowledge, wields little to no influence at all over Trump; she's basically just there to look pretty, and she doesn't even do that well.
     
    The Reagans should be available online or on your On Demand service--check it out if you haven't already.
