Most of the recent Republican Presidents did not receive much interest in a visit to their library-in fact the results are pretty disrespectful; George H. W. Bush 2%, Gerald Ford 3%, Richard Nixon 5%, George W. Bush 6%. Jimmy Carter, still in the news after his recent remarks on 60 Minutes, did a little better with 10%. But the two big winners, both with 31% were Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton. How did two Presidents so seemingly at odds philosophically get such similar support especially among independents? They were both great communicators that could inspire the nation in causes greater than ourselves, a skill that never goes out of style.
