“Sen. Barack Obama, campaigning in Nevada in early 2008, expressed his presidential ambitions in an eyebrow-raising way: by professing admiration for Ronald Reagan. ‘Reagan changed the trajectory of America in a way that Richard Nixon did not and a way that Bill Clinton did not,’ Obama said. ‘He put us on a fundamentally different path.’ It gave Democrats the heebie-jeebies to think that their nominee (sic – he was only the POTENTIAL nominee in Jan 2008) might see the greatest conservative politician of the 20th century as his model.”
