Even the all Democratic State Assembly, State Senate and Governor Brown set aside February 6 (Ronald Reagan's Birthday) to celebrate the 101st year of Ronald Reagan.
Both of my favorite Presidents during my lifetime (on the GOP side) were Nixon and Reagan, both Californians.
My favorite Democratic President during modern times was LBJ (Born on my sister's birthday).
I'll shut up now and let the Great man speak:
Reagan's First Presidential Inaugural Address
Ronald Reagan, A Time for Choosing
President Reagan, Brandenberg Speech
President Reagan Second Inaugural Address
