Ronald Reagan is viewed as one of the most influential U.S. Presidents in history. Loved by many, hated by many, results and consequences from his policies are still being felt in America today. What is his legacy now? How will he be viewed in the years to come?
On part II of our series on the life and presidency of Ronald Reagan, we conclude with the Oval Office years of "The Great Communicator." Author/historian H.W. Brands discusses Reagan's early years, including the release of the U.S. hostages in Iran, the assassination attempt survival, and the air controller's strike. We touch on the War on Drugs and the rise of AIDS, as well as the Iran-Contra affair, before ending with Reagan's final years. It's an intriguing look at a man who accomplished so much in his lifetime.
