Why Character Matters

Mikhail Gorbachev wrote an op-ed in today’s New York Times (via Kiwi Pundit). Here are the money quotes:

True, Reagan was a man of the right. But, while adhering to his convictions, with which one could agree or disagree, he was not dogmatic; he was looking for negotiations and cooperation. And this was the most important thing to me: he had the trust of the American people.

A true leader, a man of his word and an optimist, he traveled the journey of his life with dignity and faced courageously the cruel disease that darkened his final years.

(My emphasis)

Now, compare and contrast this with the projected Democrat nominee for the office of President.
