The Passing of Ronald Reagan

It's a sad day. I was no fan of Ronald Reagan as my President, but I sure respected him as a politician. Democrats were driven insane by his ability to lobby and win a point without losing his opponents friendship. His relationship with Democratic House Speaker Tip O'Neill was legendary.
How I miss the days of the loyal opposition in politics. It is such a mistake to demonize one's opponent, such a waste.

Can we take the lesson that his passing teaches without making it a political referendum on his politics?
