… Ronald Reagan is the man whose name improbably electrified the Democratic National Convention … .
… . On Wednesday night, Barack Obama said: Ronald Reagan called America “a shining city on a hill.” Donald Trump calls it “a divided crime scene” that only he can fix.
On Thursday night, Hillary Clinton said: He’s [Trump] taken the Republican Party a long way… from “Morning in America” to ”Midnight in America.” He wants us to fear the future and fear each other.
And just in case the point wasn’t clear, a former official from the Reagan administration enchanted a crowd of screaming Democrats with this one-liner …): Donald Trump, you are no Ronald Reagan.

I would say Donald Trump has more in common with Ronald Reagan than Bill and Hillary Clinton have in common with Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt.
